This is my first post but I've been reading your posts for the last 4 months since being diagnosed with Hashimoto's hypothyroidsim. Have found the forum incredibly helpful and educational.
Over the last 4 months I've been seeing a private Endo once a month in an attempt to find the right dosage of Levo. Have been on 25, 50 & 75mcg of Levothyroxine. Now back to 50mcg (for the past 5 weeks) but have had several weeks of insomnia and racing heart beat/anxiety. Yesterday the Doctor said that my latest blood test results may suggest I am over-medicated and that I should perhaps reduce Levo to 25mcg.
these are the most recent blood results:
TSH - 0.211 mu/L (0.270-4.20)
Free T4 - 20.43 pmol/L (12-22)
Free T3 - 4.8 pmol/L (3.1-6.8)
Ferritin - 89.1 ug/L (13 -150)
Vit D3 - 65.8 nmol/L (75-200 = optimally replete)
B12 - 333 ng/L (191-663)
I'd really appreciate your comments & advice on whether I should drop the dose again, given that the FT3 is only mid-range or whether I should just maintain the 50mcg dose and see if things settle down in another couple of months. The insomnia and panicky feelings are really doing my head in! I've suffered more symptoms from the medication than before I was diagnosed.
