    My Synthroid Dosage Was Increased From 100mcg to 150mcg

    will this help to decrease my TSH level and elevate my T3Free level.

    I'm not sure about the T3 level, but my synthroid was increased from 125mcg to 150mcg also.(I had a TT on 9/5) My surgeon said it was to surpress or lower my TSH. My TSH was 1.75 with a range of .4 - 5.4. He said he needed it to be lower so that my cancer cells wouldn't grow back. So, I guess the higher the sythroid, the lower your TSH would be. I'm no expert, so I hope that's right. I go back for more labs in 3wks to see how the levels are. Increasing the synthroid has helped with my energy level somewhat. I also no longer have all the arthritis-type pains I had when I was on 125mcg.

    Yes, you are taking T4, so if you increase it, in theory your tsh should go down, and the t4 would go up, and eventually convert to T3.

    Just beware, that's a nice size jump, be watchful of going hyper.
