I would really appreciate any feedback about my current problem. I have been on 100mcg of levothyroxine for a while now but the latest two batches seem much bigger tablets yet they are 100mcg MercuryPharma. I have now had three episodes of feeling faint, rapid heart, nausea, incredibly dry mouth, black spots before eyes while just strolling and hardly doing anything. I had to have a medic as I nearly passed out but my blood pressure was sky high at 190/95 it then changed down to 167/87 and my heart beat came down from 140 to 87. I saw the nurse at the surgery and she told me to keep a blood pressure chart for a week so they would average it out. When I saw the doctor I forgot to take the chart and he said it didnt matter, took my blood pressure and said it was fine. I had an ECG which he said was fine and blood tests fine. He suggested I take a betablocker bisoprolol 2.5mg to stop the possible fainting and said it would slow my heart. I am really worried about taking the betablockers as it's more medication so wondered if anyone else had had symptoms like this? It was so so scary at the time and I felt I was going to die, horrible feeling when you're in a public place feeling this ill
