Re: when do you see results???
Hi, when I first started on a T4 med I felt better in two to three weeks. This can vary for everyone. They started me out on fifty mcgs though.
You will go back in six to eight weeks for more thyroid bloodtests in which should include TSH, Ft4 and Ft3. After being on levothyroxine, your TSH will be suppressed so you really need to very closely watch the Frees,Ft4 and Ft3.
Most people feel best with the Frees in the upper 1/3 of there ranges. Hopefully you will feel better soon, but it can take up to six to eight weeks for the T4 to build up. I know it sounds so discouraging to take that long, but hopefully the time will go by faster. Are you taking selenium? It helps with T4 T3 conversion.
Hope this helped
