Re: Energy level up - ability to sleep down

Hi Chestersmom ~

Did you have sleep issues at 88 then as you worked up to 125 mcg's of Synthroid? I'm asking because two different T4 meds (generic Levothyroxine & Levoxyl) gave me sleep issues & I know I wasn't over medicated. What time of day do you take you Synthroid? I toyed with taking it at different times, finally settling on EVENING because it let me sleep a couple more precious hours. Also if your Magnesium is low, it will mess with your sleep. I take a Calcium/Mag supplement in the morning & eve.

I'm 48 y/o and have been taking hypo-Thy meds for nearly 2 years. I've been on Armour since May 07 though
