I've been taking 50mgs for 6 weeks, great progress after years of symptoms which I didn't realise were related (muscle pain in legs now gone!) and I've got an appointment next week to review. I had a private blood test done which gave TSH 3.6, I can't remember T3 or T4 but they were in the normal range, I'm still waiting for RT3 result to come back.
Trouble is, I haven't lost a bit of weight which is frustrating me beyond belief, despite diet and exercise. I suspect I'm on too low a dose of levothyroxine and the Gp will suggest raising it. Being impatient (and at wits end) I took 2 pills this morning so 100mgs total. I know this is probably unwise to do without gp approval but will it hurt to try a higher dose for a week?
