I've been on thyroxine since May. I started on 25mg then a month ago went up to 50mg.
My bp this last year has always been lower end 100/60 sometimes a tad lower. I even kept an eye on it myself sit being unwell as I'd often feel weak and I'd wordy about fainting. Since being on 50mg my bp has been up a little. My gp checked it a few weeks ago and he said it was fine as still within normal range. My bp always shoots up at the doctors so the result is never a true reading for me. I've checked it each day this week and it's been 110/78 ish. I know it's still normal range but mines naturally lower. My hubby said but it's still in normal range don't worry, but I do.
I mentioned it to my friend and she said bp issues are on the list of see gp immediately if you've bp issues on the drug. I think thyroxine is helping as I'm better than I was a few months ago so will my gp take me off the drug if it's rising my bp?
Also my friend told me that thyroxine has long term health effects. I never knew but she said thyroxine long term can cause heart problems. Something I was never told about when I started it.
It's no wonder I'm a worrier 😄
