I was put on Levothyroxine 25 mcg which I've been taking since Monday. Felt jittery yesterday and "wired" today ie sweating, jittery and a bit dizzy. My TSH was 7.7 but I have no results for T4 and T3. I also take Mirtazapine, an antidepressant, though not at the same time as the Levo. The doc says this is OK but I'm debating whether to stop the Levo and see doc again on Tuesday. Surely 25 mcg is too low to give symptoms? I was not ill ill when I saw the doc, just tired, aches and pains. The reason for the visit was to get a standard blood screen to rule out diabetes in particular as I have a cataract in one eye. I'm 52 so an advanced cataract is unusual.
I can be quite an anxious person and am very worried about the cataract. Having problems getting an NHS surgeon to leave my bad eye short sighted in order to avoid visual imbalance after surgery.
I would rather come off the Mirtazapine and then start Levo if needed. Not a pleasant prospect, but I've weaned myself off anti-ds before. Do you think this is an interaction or is this a side effect of the Levo?
