Hi, I`m new here. I have been taking 100mcg. thyroxine for 25 years ( I am 69 years old). 10 weeks ago my dose was increased by my GP to 125mcg after a serum TSH level of 0.04 mu/L was recorded from my blood test. After about 6 weeks started to get terrible anxiety, tremors, heat flushes and so I have been put back on 100mcg which I have been taking for 12 days.
I think I may have been on too higher dose for years as I did not realise it should be taken on an empty stomach for proper absorbtion. I only started to take it properly when my dose was put up!
My question is - how long before I feel an improvement? The anxiety is driving me crazy! I would so appreciate your input.
