Interesting to know you take Levo at night and helps you sleep, I may try this but I do take sleeping tablets and don't think I would either rember to take before them or that they would be ok to take together, would I be able to take the 2 together ? 2 X zopiclone 7.5mgs = 15mgs I need them or will not sleep always had problems sleeping at night.
at moment take my Levo when I wake up at 4-5 am then go back to sleep, which is working,
I have also got rid of nasty TEVO new formula god they made me feel like I didn't have much longer to live and didn't do so well on Activa more pain much more hair loss , this Mercury seems to suit me better it was the one I was on for years so maybe my body didn't like the change of other Levi's, I do hope it's not all those changes that has made me lose two thirds of my hair but hasnt got rid of all side affects, carpel syndrome still their so are the aches and pains and severe hair lass from all the Levo brands as I shed loads after each change, I can now tie my hair up with one Kirby grip, now that's thin! I can't wear dog clips as don't have enough hair to hold it any more.. and I do feel it's the Levo that has caused this ! dr said their would be no side affects with Levo ! Mmmm well I have put on about two stone since taking, lost hair feel like I'm 90 ache , I am only 53 yrs old I got sciatica which never had which caused me to lose use of my left legs for months ,I'm still walking with a stick because of it!
My aches pains were definitely not on my body before taking Levo as I'm writing this I'm getting carpel syndrome , I just can't seem to be able to do much at all with out suffering and is easier and more comfortable for me to stay in bed most of the times.
I just have got so slow at doing anything these days, no way could I go out to work as I just wouldn't be able to get up and stay awake all day I stay in bed most days as have zero energy ,and days I just stare into space, if someone asked me how day was I really could not tell them as not sure myself, I do take a multi vitamin for over 50s Bought out of boots and 1000 mgs cod liver oil tablets daily and Vitamin Adcal D3 with calcium carbonate 3000mgs ( equivalent to 1200 mg calcium with 800 I.u (equivalent to 20 micro grams v Vitamin D that's prescribed through GP years ago. I have to take lanzaprozal , as have severe heart burn if not , what ever I eat, and if I bend over I get acid reflux come up. ( I'm not sure if this stops me absorbing my Levo ?.
I'm going for some vitamin bloods soon in next couple of weeks, won't do thyroids as only sowned my dose about 2 weeks, they said wait till you have the thyroid done again, I said no as it might be vitamin deficiency and if it is why do I want to wait another 4 weeks feeling like crap no I want them done asa. Seems my Drs I'd quite good letting you pick own bloods so going with my list ready this time, then going to ask for TSH T4 Free T3 and reverse T3 in 4 weeeks , see if they will do them, they did the T3 last time I asked so they are not denying me bloods.
Anyway on Levothyroxine they say they are all the same, why do they not ask the patients who take them rather than the companies who make them as I can def say they are all very different ..the way the treat all us hypo patients the same is beyond me as we can not all be the same as we would all have same symptoms and those who are getting on with T3 are out there having a life, it's us who are looking for answers why we feel crap that are not benefitting from Levothyroxine alone, but I have discovered other friends on it feel bad but also had not put it down to the Levo but can see it is now after talking about it ! We were all supposed to take tablets go away and shut up, we have all been told take anti depressants which I now refuse to go on as they make me mongedout and ten times worse ! So they are not palming me off with that, I even got given nytryptalin for pain which I will not take as know amitryptalin is a very strong anti depressant, took a few tablets and went to bed slept for 3 days so not taking them, so they tried to trick me into taking an anti depressant to shut me up mong me out to go away and just be on that and become like a vegetable, .. not for me that's not giving me the energy i I so desperately need to have a life..
Fed up of all this pain hairloss
