I posted a few weeks ago my results and the newly diagnosis of hypothyroidism. A couple of days later I went back to the doctors to ask a few questions and query the first doctors prescription of 25 micro grams of Levothyroxine considering my symptoms. The new doctor instantly upped the dose to 50 and told me to up to 75 if needed. I have been on 50 for 15 days and still feel exhausted. The doctor also ran more blood tests to check for rheumatoid arthritis, and my cortisol levels( whatever that is) I have called doctors for results and they said they were satisfactory!
I have looked at my test results and noticed at the bottom there are notes saying Drug Therapy: marginal tfts, tsh 4.6 repeat to...
Results as posted originally Serum Tsh level 6.41 miu/L (0.27-4.20)
Serum free T4 11.1 pmol/L (12.0-22.0)
Are these notes relevant? Also how do I know if I need to up to the 75? Would anyone know based on my results what sort of dosage I should be on at this point? I don’t want to overdose. Also due to starting the Levo I have had to change to taking my fluoxetine at night, I am driving hubby mad with restlessness which has been a problem for a while now could the night dosage of fluoxetine make this worse?
Sorry so new to this and no matter how much I read It’s all so confusing!
