: Had all the classic hypo symptoms-fatigue, mental fog, dizziness, gastrointestinal problems. My TSH was initially tested at 11.8. My doc felt that thyroid hormone replacement was necessary, so I was put on .05MG of Levothroid. My 6 week follow-up TSH returned a 4.2 reading. Will my TSH continue down with current dosage, or should I up it? I'd like to get it down below 2. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Steve
I have been told twice now that a medication change doesn't totally take effect for about 3 months. Hang in there :-)
