I can't sleep since started higher dose

of Amrou Thyroid. I told my doctor and he said that is definately the cause and told me to go back down than slowly move myself up. I tried that again and here I am not sleeping at all, so tired!! I don't need this high of dose if it is going to do nothing but not let me get some rest. I'm so tired I can hardly function!! I need sleep!

Anyone can you relate or have any advice?

Re: I can't sleep since started higher dose

I'm just on t4 meds. Maybe your getting to much t3 with the t4 in your meds. Have your been on just synthroid? or maybe your dose is just to high. I had some trouble sleeping as we were raising my dose, but i wasn't tired, i just couldn't sleep, One time i was awake for three days But then i got back on a more normal sleep habit.

Are you splitting your dose or taking it all at one time?

Re: I can't sleep since started higher dose

I had insomnia when I raised my dose (raised it only 15 mg). I went back down and tried it again a week later. The same thing happened. However, this time I just stuck it out, and the next night I slept better. (The previous time I went back down on the dose after one horrible night.) I guess it was only temporary for me. How many nights have you had insomnia since your dose increase?

Re: I can't sleep since started higher dose

I went up 15 mg and that is when the insomnia started. I went back down and felt better and than tried to go back up again with the same result! So, I just can't do it any higher and will stay on the lower dose. I feel fine lower and my doctor thinks for now that is ok.
