Dx Hashimoto’s Rx Synthroid
I have been hypothyroid for many years. One of my endo’s had me taking alternate daily doses of Synthroid, 88mcg and 75mcg. My last endo told me to just take the 88mcg and even 100mcg in an effort to find a proper dosage. The 100mcg proved to be too much and for years I did well on 88mcg. My last TSH was 1.8 in a range of .3 – 5.5. Then I started to become very irritable and was getting very dizzy an hour or two of taking the 88mcg Synthroid. I decided to reduce my dosage to 75mcg. All was going well for about a month and then the fatigue set in and I went back to the 88mcg. It has been several days and I am still fatigued, depressed, and have a stiff neck. I assume it will take a few weeks to restore my energy levels, but then I will also be faced with the irritability and dizziness. It seems that the 88mcg is too much and the 75mcg is not enough. I have tried other meds with negative results. Comments appreciated.
