have been on thyroxine for 6months now! 100mcg.
First of all, my pharmacy keeps changing the branding... do you find this affects symptoms etc. I've noticed there's one that seems to be slightly less effective despite it being the same dosage?! Placebo.... or perhaps difference in drug.,.?
Secondly, I still feel tired occasionally throughout the day and I definitely would feel it if I were to exercise. Normal day I'm fine but there seems to be a very fine line between exhausting myself and having a later bedtime:time of beginning to feel tired! If I have a normal day I find I go to bed very late now ... whereas I'd usually crash at around 8pm - this has drammaticaly changed to 11:30ish pm. Does this mean my dosage is too high...? Or is it likely to be other things like stress (I'm a student...).
TSH 7.3 (0.35-5.00)
T4 10 (9.0 -19.00)
My most recent levels were:
TSH 0.17 (0.35 -5.00)
T4 17.5 (9.00-19.0)
I did gain weight however it was minimal...(I'm a fussy eater so this isn't too surprising as I rarely eat enough calories compared to what I do) But since taking my thyroxine - I've gained a huge appetite! Is this normal? And I eat (almost) excessively now! If my dosage was too high would I start to lose weight? (Currently about right for my height age etc so was just a concern/ curiosity)
