I took Euthyrox a few years ago (25mcg/day) but didn't felt any difference, so I stopped taking it.
My thyroid lab results never looked any good, that's why I decided to start taking Euthyrox again. My doc told me to take 25mcg/day and maybe (!) increase after a while.
I started taking 25mcg Euthyrox 10 days ago. The first few days everything was fine (not feeling better, but also not feeling worse), but now I feel veeeeery tired and sluggish and want to sleep all day. I don't have the power to do things. I feel so much worse than before taking Euthyrox.
Should I increase to 50mcg? Is it harmful to take 50mcg for a few days to see how I feel and then go back to 25mcg if I feel worse on 50mcg?
Unfortunately, I don't have any lab results right now. All I know is that my TSH was 5.94 μIU/ml [0.40 - 4.00] 1 year ago.
I take the tablet in the morning on an empty stomach.
I am 195cm tall and weigh about 100kg (gained 20kg in the last 2 years). I am a 24-year-old guy.
I tried NDT about 2-3 years ago but it made me feel like I'm almost dying.
