Thyroid UK

Up and down like a yo you!

Hi

Have had underactive thyroid and diagnosed in 2006.

Eventually got my meds sorted on 150mg all seemed well. Then my doctor told me I was over medicated and as I listened to them I reduced my meds to 125mg. I am a grumpy bitch. Can't sleep and cold hands. One minute I seem fine and the next I am being irrational and moody which isn't like me.

My.blood results I was told no further action required whatever that means.

I wonder shall I just go back to 150mg and see how I feel?

My.moods have cost.me my relationship.

Do you have recent results with ranges ? Quite possible that prople here will not agree with your GP .....

I haven't got the results. Will see if I can get them.

Two GPS said I am over medicated and the other one said it's only very slightly I think she said 0.2 if that makes any sense.

Ah so it seems as if you are talking about the TSH. You are only over medicated if your FT3 is over range which probably has not been tested ...

What's best to do? Get results and post on here? I have put myself back on 150mg as I figured 0.2 is ok on 150. I can't carry on how I was I am not a moody person.

Thanks for taking the time to respond to me

Yes start a new thread with your results. You also need to have your anti -bodies checked along with B12 - Ferritin - Folate - VitD.

What other meds are you taking and how do you take your T4 ?
