Feeling weird a couple hours after taking meds


I'm going through a weird phase.

I feel decent when I get up in the morning. I take my Levoxyl right away so I can eat in an hour. For the past few days I have been feeling weird and off-balance/poorly coordinated in the mornings starting a couple hours after I take my pill. I actually feel better as the day goes on, and I feel fine when I first get up and for those first couple hours or so.

I don't understand why this is happening. It's Levoxyl, which isn't fast-acting. Anyone have any ideas? I feel awful right now, but by this afternoon I'll be fine. It's hard feeling like this especially when I have to drive to work. I got panicky the other morning feeling like I was going to drive off the road from the vertigo.

I haven't been doing anything unusual, no new herbals, no weird foods, etc. I can't attribute this to anything else and it is odd how much it fluctuates during the day. My energy in general is inconsistent but fairly decent. I don't feel weak, just off-balance and "weird".

I'm supposed to be starting Armour this week to see if the T3 will help me, overall, or if I'm sensitive to synthetics, but I haven't heard back yet from my naturopath.

May be you should get a good overall check up with your doc, and make sure your naturopath knows......cath

Re: Feeling weird a couple hours after taking meds

I don't get that same reaction, but about 1 1/2 hours after I take my thyroid meds, my heart gets racy and beats harder, and this lasts for a couple of hours. Then, it calms down and I'm steady the rest of the day. I don't know why either.
