    Medication question

    How long does it take to get regulated on Synthroid? I'm three months out from my total thyroidectomy and can't seem to get the dose right. Just dropped from Synthroid 88mcg to 75 mcg because of palpitations, shakiness and jittery.

    It takes time, but it's impossible to predict exactly how long.
    Dose adjustments have to be made in small increments, and there needs to be a 6-8 week waiting period between adjustments.

    Try to be patient. You'll get there, with a smart MD's help!
