Hi. I had a blood test on Friday 25/8 and my tsh is up to 3.45 [0.3 - 5.5] on Eltroxin 100mcg tablets for 7 weeks.
Before then my tsh was 0.77 on 100mcg made up of 50actavis + 2*25 Mercury Pharma.
Before my tsh was 0.08 on 100mcg actavis.
In all instances tests were c.7am fasting with c.28 hours after previous Levo tablet (taken at night). Tsh ranges were same for all years.
I wasn't feeling good on the actavis 100mcg when my tsh was lowest. I was actually feeling quite well a couple of weeks into the Eltroxin 100mcg and thought I might be turning a corner although I've got the palpitations back (usually 1-2 a day), a bit of tiredness and my memory is shocking again. My endo had requested my tsh is kept below 1 although my gp never checks this and he marked this test result as 'no action' so I need to go and see him again to remind him and get a dose increase(...why does it all have to be this hard?)
Any ideas? Could it be the Eltroxin is out of potency - it is dated to use by 11 2017??? Or is there an attack triggered fluctuation? I've been feeling rough for about a week with achy liver and digestive issues so could have eaten something (I'm on a clean diet, strictly gluten free & 99% dairy free).
Any advice or experiences welcome 🙂. Thank you!
