I2 days ago I reluctantly reduced my daily dose of levothyroxine from 125 to 100 per day. The reduction was due to the cancellation of an operation by my anaethetist following a blood test the hospital did which showed an FT4 of 17.4 (range 7.8 - 14.4). My GP who is under a different NHS trust retested my blood TSH 0.20 (range 0.35 - 5.5) FT4 18.4 (range 9 - 22.7). Although my GP felt I was stable on this dose in order that I can have the operation rescheduled it was agreed that I would reduce my dose.
I am now feeling tired and sluggish and lacking in concentration. I am tearful and feel quite down. What I'm not sure about is whether these symptoms are because of reducing my dose or I'm imagining them because I expect to feel bad!! Would I really be feeling any different after only 12 days??
