Hi i got my test results from my gp and my tsh was 2.4 i have been very tired brain fog no appetite etc but gp said it was a normal result.I returned to my gp and he put my dose up to 25mg extra on alternate days, i was okay for a couple of weeks now i feel like i have gone hyper i.e sweating palpatations not sleeping i have now dropped to my original dose 100g daily but i am now starting with hypo symptons again,I went back to my gp who told me to stay on 100m, and have another test at the end of feb As anyone else felt like this and could this dose be altered in any way as i do not want to feel like this till the end of feb. thanks

Re: doseage help

Maybe you should try taking extra 12,5 mcgs on alternate days. I know a few people that need to adjust their doses by 1/4 of a 25 mcg pill a day.

Re: doseage help

Why not just increase the daily dose a little (instead of adding some on alternate days)?
