Thank you Sammy. I sure hope I can convince him that I'm a big 'ole sloppy mess (to put it politely!) and he'll agree to a 5mcg increase. Eeks, cutting those 25mcg pills into 17.5 is gonna be tricky and messy!

Hope you're able to get the doctor to agree!

No matter what, eliminating coffee with your levo should help....hopefully, a lot.
Ever since my blood test on Monday, I've been taking the Levo in the middle of the night, with water. (at least two hours before my morning coffee fix!) But, as of yet .... I really haven't noticed any difference. (soon, I hope!)
