My dose of levo was increased from 25mcg to 50mcg two weeks ago. Initially I took 2 X 25mcg to make the 50mcg, and those were MP. While I know it takes several weeks to get the full benefit, within the first week I experienced some improvement, sleeping much better and with hot flushes disappearing entirely (yay!). I then got the 50mcg prescription made up and was given Almus/Actavis. The positive side is that I think my gut prefers this brand - less bloating. But I am starting to get the occasional hit flush again so temperature regulation is not as good, and that affects my sleep; and I've also got itchy skin. So I don't know whether to stick with Actavis or see if the pharmacist will swap my tablets for MP ones.
I guess I'll only find out by trial and error which suits me best overall. But wondered if anyone else had had a similar experience, or any advice to offer...
