How long does it take to notice change from Synthroid?

I just started Synthroid on Sunday (50 mcg) because since the left side of my thyroid was removed, the right side does not appear to have 'picked up the slack'. My level was 4.59 (before surgery I was at 1.92).

Anyway, I do not feel any different....how long does it take to notice a change in your body from Synthroid?

Re: How long does it take to notice change from Synthroid?

Thyroid hormone needs time to be absorbed and go to work. You should feel some difference within 10 days to 2 weeks. You won't feel the full effect of any one dose until about 6 weeks.

Wink Re: How long does it take to notice change from Synthroid?

I had a TT...and was without a thyroid or hormone replacement for 2.75 months...my TSH was 127. I could barely walk or even complete a sentence that made sense!
I started Synthroid like Oct 12th 2007 and I could actually walk without help the next day and I could pick up my purse without assistance! My legs were still very weak and was difficult to do stairs for a few weeks. My brain fog disappeared nearly immediately.

Hope you begin to feel like the old you soon!
