Apologies if this has been asked/answered before, I would normally do a lot of research but my mind is all over the place at the moment.
I am one of the lucky ones in having an enlightened GP who, despite my TSH only being slightly out of range (5 point something) started me on 50mg levothyroxene. This has recently (last week) been increased to 100mg and I am starting to have some side effects - headache and being really hungry. Last night I woke up in a sweat, desperate for the loo, and then couldn't get back to sleep.
I am also taking antidepressents (40mg Fluoxetine) and a blood pressure tablet plus a multi-vitamin and calcium/cod liver oil. I have been taking the levothyroxene first thing in the morning, the vitamins when I remember, usually at lunchtime, and the Fluoxetine and blood pressure tablet before I go to bed and I am not sure this is the best approach given the side effects I have been getting.
Does anyone have any advice as to a better daily regime or should I go back to the gp (who didn't actually say anything about timings when I last saw him, just told me to try the 100mg levothyroxene for 6 weeks). I hope eventually to come off the anti-depressents as I am convinced I have been misdiagnosed these last 7 years I have been on them (since I had my twins) but GP has said I should stay on them until we get my levothyroxene dosage right.
Any advice gratefully received.
