About 2 weeks ago my thyroxine was increased from 50 to 75mcg as my blood tests were getting worse. I used to SLEEEEEP haha! I had absolutely no issues with sleeping in till 10 to 11 in the morning but i'd also go to bed quite late. I often bragged around the fact I could always make myself go back to bed with no hesitation ( i will say, this may be associated with the awful fatigue felt when I didn't know I had hypothyroidism!)
Ever since this new dose increase, no matter what time I go to bed (and now it's usually a lot earlier cause i've been up for so long) i wake up wide eyed at 0450 in the morning. Its always around this time, and only in the last 2 days have I lay in bed forcing myself to stay asleep and managed to lightly dose off for an hour and half at max.
Does anyone have any tips on combating this?! Do i decrease my tablets again if i felt my symptoms were better before the increase anyway? Is it just a phase whilst my body adjusts to the hormones? I work shifts (12 hours) and i need my sleep!
I am taking 1000 IU vitamin D3 daily as this was half than what it should be, and i'm on the combined pill - I do want to come off this but it helps with my acne but as its a strong hormonal pill I wonder if this effects things?
