As you might know, it's a matter of getting the thyroid levels at a good place in order to feel well and symptomfree again. How long that takes can be quite individual.
Hang in there
thanks for responding. This is a first for me on any site like this. Well i had tt. July 18 2012. I started 100mcg on august 1, 2012. Dose was increased to 125 mcg on september 3, 2012 then increased to 137mcg on october 2, 2012. I feel better than i did as far as energy and staying awake goes. But still not anywheres near how i should be. So hoping this dose level will do it for me. I start it tomorrow. The medication is called levothyroxin.
After using the 125 mcg dose for almost a month, taking at 7 am., i was seeming to feel better till around 11:00 am-12:00 noon. Then i would come crashing down fairly fast. Crashing as in my energy took a nose-dive. All i could do is sit and sleep. So is that normal as in how it affects you until the right dosage is found to level the hormones? I have read so much on this, but i can't seem to find this addressed. I have asked my endo, she says we have to find your correct level. I just am hoping it is not a standard scale, i want a personal level, that works for me. She never gave me a when, so i was kind of wondering if what i am going through is normal. Thank you all in advance. Hope to read what you all have to go through so i can compare. Thanks again lisa.
