wow marian i feel just like you my tsh is 2.58 last time i was checked but i started out on levothyroxine then gyn switched me to synthyrold i felt terrible the whole time on them so i switched back to levothyroxine myself im taking 50mcgs but i think i need a increase im constandly crying for no reason im depressed and my hormones are normal so im sure this is thyriolds and i dont fall asleep 24/7 anymore but im just so depressed and cry allmost allday long .im going to a new dr today and im letting him know and noway will i ever go back on synthyrolds some can take them but i couldnt .
ps i just found out i had thyriold disorder in jan my t4 was 1.4 he didnt do the t3 thats why i changed dr's .....
