heart beat a bit fast

Hi there,

I've been on 50 mcg of Levo for 13 days and today i've noticed my heart beat is a little fast. It's just over 80 beats a minute. Is this normal when starting Levo?

Re: heart beat a bit fast

I haven't taken my pill this morning as my heart rate was still a little bit fast.

Since I've got to work, my heart rate has reduced to 69 bpm.

Regards,
Martyn

Re: heart beat a bit fast

I wouldn't say it's "normal", but this kind of effect is common. I wouldn't worry about a pulse of 80 at all, since the norm is up to 70 or so.

If you're younger and otherwise healthy, it probably means nothing; but if it worsens to the point it causes you intolerable anxiety, check with your doctor.
