feeling hyper on dosage increase
I've been on 30mg of Armour for several years, and recently convinced my doctor to try upping it. I wasn't feeling horrible, but couldn't lose weight, got very tired in the afternoons especially, and my mood was a little low. My T4 was slightly low, so she prescribed 50mcg of levoxyl in addition to the 30mg of Armour. I could tell that night it was way too much. I took nothing for 3 days, then tried just upping the Armour to 60mg. I lasted on that dosage about 3 days, felt both exhausted and hyper. I wasn't officially hyper according to the blood work, but I felt awful. Back to nothing for a few days, then just the 30mg Armour for a few days, by which time I felt really tired and depressed. Yesterday I tried cutting the levoxyl in 1/4 (.125), at my doctor's suggestion, and adding that to the 30mg Armour. I felt great yesterday, my mood was up, energy was back, but then slept very badly last night and feel kind of buzzy today. My question is whether feeling hyper on a dosage increase necessarily means I'm getting too much medication or whether I might eventually get used to it, and if so, what's a reasonable amount of time in which to expect that to occur?
