I don't feel normal

In July I was referred to a endocrinologist I have some of the symptons of Hypothyroidism, my results came out borderline she put me on 25g of thyroxine I still feel quite ill and extremely tired I don't feel like my normal self I am 36 currently in a full-time job most days I struggle to even stay awake at work and feel like a zombie during and on the way home from work. I feel imbalance similar to being tipsy i thought the pills were suppose to even me out, how long does the process take? I just want to get on with my life I'm supposed to be sitting exams in November the way things are going it might not happen please advise me
Thank you

Re: I don't feel normal

Sorry to say, you won't feel normal until your dose is increased to the point where you need it to be and have been there for a few weeks to months. 25 mcgs is just a starter dose, not meant to be therapeutic.

Here's the URL to a thread with good advice some of us regulars have put together for thyroid newbies like you...

Hope it won't be long until you're feeling better!
