I had read an article that some people who are Hypothyroid tend to do better if they take their Thyroxine on a night rather than first thing in the morning. So I thought I’d try it out and see if it really does make a difference. I'm not sure if anyone else has read anything about it or been given advice by GPs or Endos. I can't remember what article it was now, I thought I would undergo an experiment to see if it would make a difference or not. For this experiment I will be taking my 100mcg of Levothyroxine at 23:00 (11pm) instead of 07:00 (7am).
I have a feeling that I may get more symptoms or I may feel worse for a while, but it will be all part of the experiment, I will try and write on this blog everyday of any symptoms that arise, anything new happens and if I get worse or if it makes me feel better.
If anyone has tried this and it has/hasn't worked for them it would be interesting to compare notes. This is not only an experiment on my part as a fellow sufferer but also as a 2nd year student nurse. I think it would be something I could possibly pass on in a professional capacity too.
Sunday was my first day of the experiment as I think I will need also do some clinical observations too such as my temperature, pulse, etc. I'm assuming it will take a good few weeks for me to notice if anything has changed, as I have been on 100mcg Levothyroxine for about 4/5 years taking it on a morning. However i forgot to do my observations. I will do them in the morning.
