After 18 months of seeing different GP's within my practice and presenting with hypo symptoms and blood test results showing I am hypo and being told 'your results are borderline, we'll watch and wait', I finally saw a GP who was willing to treat me as my TPO antibodies were high.
So, in January I was started on 50mcg of Levothyroxine.
This was great as I started to feel so much better, most of my symptoms seem to magically disappear.
At 8 weeks I booked another blood test and follow up appointment with my doctor only to be told that I was over-replaced and he was cutting my dose back to 25mcg.
He did mention though that I may need to up my dose again slightly by alternating 25/50 to get an average dose of 37.5.
The thing is, since that appointment, as I had some 50 tablets left over, I have been alternating them 25/50 like the doc mentioned and I have found my hypo symptoms returning gradually after 1 week.
I'm at a loss now and don't really know if I should keep going with the 25mcg dose (that's all I have left now) for another few weeks until time of the next test or if I should go back sooner perhaps only to be refused my previous dose of 50mcg although it made me feel much better.
Test results on diagnosis: Test results after 8 weeks on 50mcg:
TSH 6.35 (0.35 - 3.5) TSH 0.03 (0.35 - 3.5)
FT4 12 (10 - 25) FT4 22 (10 - 25)
T3 testing is not an option.
Would appreciate anyone's thoughts or advice on this?
