asked the question a few weeks ago regarding withdrawal symptoms having been reduced by new GP from 200 levothyroxine a day to 125. I had some very helpful answers. I went back to my GP who said perhaps my body had been used to being overdosed for so long and had learnt to cope with it and now found it difficult to function on less. She raised the dose to 150 and said lets see blood results in 6 weeks. The thing is I still feel dreadful. Find it difficult to get out of bed every day and cry all the time often with no good reason. I was happy and healthy on 200 since my thyroid was removed 9 years ago. Why was it considered worth tampering with I really cant bear the thought of feeling like this for ever just because the "guidelines" say its what I should have. I told Gp last week I have never felt so "universally" ill even when I had a brain tumour which was removed 14 months ago. I am angry and depressed but getting nowhere now
