I'm currently on 100mcg of Actavis T4 and have found Actavis possibly suits me better than Teva. As I'm not yet euthyroid I'm hoping for an increase to 125mcg after my next blood tests. i believe Actavis make 50 mcg and 100 mcg tablets whereas Teva make 25 mcg and 100 mcg ones. I'm keen to avoid Teva though and wondered what to ask the (sometimes fairly clueless) GP to write as a prescription. I'm concerned that if she just writes 125mcg on it, I will end up with Teva.
Should I ask for two prescriptions- e.g. One for 8 weeks' worth of 100mcg and another for 4 weeks of 50 mcg? Or is there an easier way of getting 125mcg prescribed?
If she agrees to that, am I best to take take 100 mcg then 150 mcg on alternate days or cut the 50 mcg in half and take 125 mcg each day? Or perhaps it doesn't matter?
Finally, is anyone else out there on 125mcg and can let me know what brand they're on and how they do things?
Huge thanks as ever for anyone's thoughts.
