upped in dosage....feeling FABULOUS!

Hey all. had my first follow up doc appointment on Monday. we went over my labs-after 1 month of being on 50mcgs of Levoxyl-my Tsh went down from 10+ to 2.9.I told him i was still feeling crappy. He upped my dosage to 75, and I feel amazing!!!! So much energy. He told me we will recheck in a month. he said he wants to bring my tsh down more....we'll see!

Hi Toni I am very happy for you. You must have a very good MD. My MD is a

Doesn't it feel great to feel good after feeling so poorly? It is amazing that these little pills can do so much for us. Hope you continue to feeling well.

Re: upped in dosage....feeling FABULOUS!

Hi Toni!
Remember I posted in your thread and told you the exact same happened to me?!! No improvement on the 50mg, but once I switched to 75mg I felt AMAZING!!
HOWEVER... I've got bad news.. It's my 3rd week of the 75mg and now I'm getting HYPERthyroid symptoms.. including racing heart, chest pain, jitteryness Hopefully this doesn't happen to you as well!
I have no idea what's next. Going to see doc on Wednesday.

Hi Toni,

For those of us who are still waiting to feel better, it's encouraging to know there are some out there who are doing well. It gives us hope.

Stacey, I hope you are able to get yours balanced. Hang in there. These things take time.

Re: upped in dosage....feeling FABULOUS!

yes the same thing happened with me. (had my stuff upped from 50 to 75mg) and felt great. Some days more than others, the energy level seems to be lasting a tad longer. I have 90 days then blood tests, and so far so good.

Glad to hear your good report.
