I've just started taking Erfa on Saturday. Was taking 75mcg Levo up until Friday.
Got the Erfa from an Endo in London who I felt reasonably comfortable with.
Prescribed 30mg tablets which I believe are 1/2 grain, take 2 per day. Initially no indication of best time or how to take them. Other than saying take them for 6 weeks, then get a blood test done. So I googled around, looked at STTM etc.
Also the pharmacist at the clinic where I went had said if I had any questions to get in touch. So on Sunday evening I did send an email for him to look at Monday with a short list of questions. He replied later saying he'd discussed with the Prof and the Prof said he would reply himself. Haven't hear back yet, perhaps tomorrow.
Taken 1st tablet early morning, 2nd tablet around 2.30pm. Taken with a glass of water and ate food an hour later.
Saturday OK, Sunday OK, Monday OK. Had some mild palpitations, but I've been having these before on Levo more recently anyway.
This morning, had a very muzzy head when I woke up and out of curiosity took my BP which was quite high. Heart rate raised a bit (82) I am already taking Indapamide 2.5mg for my blood pressure as earlier in the year I was having high spikes.
Took BP 15 minutes later and still high. Decided that even not knowing whether its connected with the Erfa I would try halving the dose today until I hear back from the Prof. Managed to get through my working day and took other half of tablet at 3pm. Head still a bit muzzy.
Any thoughts very much appreciated.
I don't want to do the knee jerk thing of switching straight back to Levo but thats a little bit how I'm feeling this evening.
