I have just had results after being on just 25mcg for 8 weeks and gp phoned tonight and said the TSH and T4 were unchanged.They were 5something for TSH and 15 for T4.he said to just stay on the 25mcg.Thanks to this site and the info I have gleaned from it I had the confidence to say would the figures improve if I stay on that dose? He said no,and although the lab reading is within range if you feel you still have clinical symptoms then we will increase to 50mcg.I said I felt that after 2 weeks on it I noticed improvement but that had peaked and now seemed to be waining.He said then up dose to 50mcg as from tomorrow. Great to at least be given a try,so thanks again for all the info and help.Just wondering though, if by chance 50mcg is too much for me, will I know it in a day or so,or is it a case of it taking 2 weeks or so to reach higher level? Or do I just get on with it and see what happens if anything? I did think of doing 37.5 Mcg but the levo just shattered so that didn't seem to great an idea! These are still quite small doses tho so maybe nothing much different? Thanks
