Re: Med ????
Even doubling the dose is more agressive than what I think a doctor shoul be doing. Inceasing the dose that quickly is a big stress on your body. This weakens your adrenal glands, and weak adrenals have many of the same symptoms that hypothyroidism has. Your best bet is to SLOWLY increase your dose. Sometimes it takes months for the TSH to follow your med changes, depending on your body. Also, TSH can vary as much as threefold during the course of a day, making it an inaccurate indicator, anyhow. (This according to the online thyroid text at <A HREF="http://www.thyroidmanager.org)" TARGET=_blank>www.thyroidmanager.org)</A>
Is your doc going by TSH alone, or are T4 and T3 also being checked. My recomendation is to base your treatment on Free T4 and Free T3 tests and not put so much weight on TSH. Again, progress slowly.
