Elderly people usually need smaller doses than younger ones, and 150 is higher than the average person needs anyway. The average is about 120.
There are other brands besides Synthroid and Levoxyl. Maybe one of those would be better, but I suspect the size of the dose may be the culprit.
They increased her dose every two weeks..Started her out at 25 , 50 ,100 so forth and so on until 150...Ive asked my aunt which is her daughter to get her in to see a endo but instead she is letting a neurologist treat her for the thyroid problem.." go figure "..Thank you Midwest
I will suggest to my aunt about the dose decrease to see if it helps..
