You should feel some relief after a week or two. It takes a while longer for things to properly level out but your symptoms should be gone pretty soon. Often a decrease of 12.5 per day does the trick so if you start to shift towards hypoT you might need a dose of 137.5. Exercise burns out some hormone and calms nerves but don't overdo it.
