Dr appt today

dr upped my doage to 100 mg of levoxyl and said to come back in 4 weeks to get blood tested.

does anyone know what an adult would need to total dose if had no thyroid at all

Also would a Pulse of 55 and temp of 97.8 spell hypo?

Re: Dr appt today

If you had a total thyroidectomy you have to have medication that acts as a replacement for the thyroid functions.

Keep us posted. I think someone from the group can give you a better explanation.
