I was over-medicated with thyroxine as my TSH was6.57 mu/L. This may have been because I was not taking my 100mcg. dose on an empty stomach! My dose was raised to 125mcg. but this gave me all the symptoms of being hyper. I was back on 100mcg. for 8 weeks and I felt much better - no symptoms. I was fine until a few days ago when I started to get irritable. The next day I had palpitations, hot flushes and tremors. Today I feel as though I am back where I started and feel really ill.
I am wondering if my need for thyroxine is getting less? I am 69 and have been on 100mcg for approx. 25 years (albeit taking it wrongly!) with no problems. I am thinking of cutting down to 75mcg. as I don`t see my GP for a couple of weeks.
Any ideas what could be going on?? Getting desperate.
