Hi I'd be be so grateful for some advice. I posted my results the other day and have seen my doctor since then who has advised me to lower my meds. But am scared to do this as had a bad flair a few months ago where TSH was 4.79 (See below). She raised my dose of Levothyroxine at this point and I felt better, but now she is saying TSH too low and advising I skip a day with both meds - so take every other day.
I've been hypothyroid with hasimoto's for years and am currently on 25mg of levothyroxine and take half a tablet of Novothyrol per day (which means 10mg Liothyronine and 50mg Levothyroxine). So total daily 10mg Liothyronine and 75mg Levo.
In October results were as follows and I was experiencing lots of symptoms so the 25mg of Levo was added on top of 1/2 a Novothyrol tablet which I was already taking:
5.8 Free T3
13.5 Free Thyroxine
Most recent results last week (Jan):
0.08 TSH (0.27 - 4.2)
4.6 Free T3 (3.1 - 6.8)
16.8 Free T4 (12 - 22)
I feel better than I did but if anything I thought I was still underactive as still experiencing some symptoms e.g. last period was heavy and close to previous one.
Would be great to hear any thoughts on this as worried if I lower dose I'll flair up again.
