After my last round of blood tests, my GP decided I could move up from my starter 25 mcg Levo to a 25/50 mcg alternate days increase (she's being ultra-cautious, I know). At the time I spoke to her I didn't really consider tablet brands or anything, so far I've been OK with the Wockhardt 25 mcg ones. So I found I had been given a 3 month supply with half on the same Wockhardts and the rest are 50 mcg Mercury Pharma.
So about 10 days into this regime now and I am feeling, for want of a better word, like crap. I've a dull headache behind my eyes, I am getting very tired again, couldn't even sit up for New Year's Eve like I normally do. The light hurts my eyes. I do have a history of allergies to all sorts of things so I'm immediately suspicious. Up to this point I'd been doing OK on the original Levo tabs, so I do think these symptoms indicate an issue with the Mercury ones.
I'm currently gluten-free and as far as I'm aware I've no problems with lactose.
I hope my pharmacist will exchange the 50s to the Wockhardts 25 mcg. Do they make those in 50s? I could just double up the tabs every other day.
Happy New Year to everyone by the way.
