Hi all. I’m on NDT have been for two years. GP is aware but not thrilled mainly let’s me get on with it but runs my vitals when asked.
In the last few weeks I believe I’ve been having overmedicated symptoms rather than a hyper swing like I first thought.
Background is I felt fine but I thought I had room to increase my numbers so I raised. Initially all fine but a while later hit with symptoms like elevated heart rate,episodes of palpitations two or three times a day, flushed face, muscle aches, bad anxiety. Feeling a little flu like.
I decreased my meds yesterday to the dose I felt well on before. Still dealing with lingering hyper symptoms. Heart rate is still elevated around the high 80’s/90’s touching 100 when I’m anxious and thinking about it normal for me is around 75. Anxiety makes it worse. I’ve had tests on heart before and doc said I elevate when I’m anxious so under advice there not to go emergency unless it is above 120. It’s not been reaching those levels.
My main question is what’s the best way to decrease when you’ve gone over and how long until you start to feel better? My main issue now is when I take my meds it sends my resting heart rate up and I begin to feel more anxious a couple of hours after that stops. I know I only lowered yesterday though and it’ll take time.
I’ve also read about pooling so if that’s the case I may need to come down a lot more? When should I run labs now I’ve lowered?
Any input would be helpful
