What is normal for adjustment period for new dosage?

Hi everyone. I am on my fourth week of my increased dosage of synthroid and am feeling really fatigued and achy, but not as bad as I was before I started my beginning (tiny) dosage back in Nov. I was not extremely hypo when I started, but was having lots of symptoms. Some are gone now, but the tiredness is killing me, since I start my new university teaching job tomorrow night! Is this normal? I know it can take 6-8 weeks for the hormone to reach and get used by all my tissues, and I have heard some of you talk about the rollercoaster of med adjustments, but I am not sure what is normal. Any thoughts?
