So after spending the majority of my life feeling tired and lethargic, my thyroid was tested and came back borderline but was prescribed levothyroxine, based on my symptoms.
This was approximately 4 years ago and felt a vast improvement. I am currently on 100 and take it every morning at 7am.
I still feel quite lethargic at times but not sure what to do? As I've just found out that the dose I'm on is probably not being absorbed properly!!....Up until may'17, I was taking it with my morning decaf coffee with milk and leaving only a 30 minute gap till breakfast. In May I slipped my disc so now wake up between 3-5am, by the time 7am comes round, I've probably drank about 3 or 4 coffees.
I have been stable on my dose the last 18mths and not due bloods yet. I have no idea what the results were but will sign up at the doctors so I can view past results online to refer to.
My dilemma is, do I continue taking the Levo as I was? Or do I only drink water and have my coffee and breakfast one hour later? I did try the latter yesterday but by 4pm I was crippled with migraine and sickness and today i am a lot thirstier than usual. Not sure if it's related and it's because my body is receiving far more Levo than I actually need, or I am just being paranoid. I'd just like some advice really so I know how to take it tomorow please?
I am currently on 75mg pregablin which I take around 8pm ish and co-coďamols for breakthrough pain as needed.
Thanks in advance
