Question reassurance needed if med is working

My med was changed 2 weeks ago from Levoxyl to Levothyroid.
My TSH was severely high still trying to find out my FreeT4. My dose was increased after 4 weeks of o.25 to .05
My question is I have felt better at times then these hyper feeling come
in. I also wonder sometimes if the med is working. I wont know for 4-6 weeks
and have to get my levels stabalized. Ive been sick for 2 months and
I have always been a calm person,NOT ANYMORE.Does anyone think from
their knowledge that since I have hyper s/s also that the med is probable
doing its job. You hear so much about potency problems with different
companies it makes you worry more. I take it at the same time everyday.
on empty stomach, Calcium 4 hrs. later, and keeping a log.
worry and anxious is not normal for me. B/P not too high yet either.
I am trying to have patience then the doubts come in. Thank You for
listening. suem

Re: Question reassurance needed if med is working

Sue, from what I've read here it can take a while to get used to the meds - the longer you've been sick and without the worse your reaction can be suddenly having the hormones present again. You're doing the right thing, keeping track of your symptoms and taking the meds at the same time every day. I can't add anything more excep to hang in there and keep doing this.

big hugs,
Nat
