I wonder, has anyone experienced a similar situation as me on the new formulation TEVA levothyroxine and if so, how long does it take for the symptoms to subside?
Was given upped dosage of 25 mcg new formulation TEVa by my pharmacist along with my usual 100 mcg of usual brand Activis. Took them for 5 weeks but felt increasingly unwell, unimaginable anxiety and panic, insomnia, aching at the back of legs, down my arms, chest pains, difficulty processing information and word retrieval.
Light bulb moment! Realised although bloods revealed I was low and I needed a little more levo, my symptoms were typical and mild compared to the symptoms I have experienced since adding the 25 mcg of TEVA.
I've changed back now to both doses of Activis brand levo. I just want to feel like me again. Anyone been there, done that? 😊
