    Missed Medication Dosage for a Week

    Long story...short:

    I lost/misplaced my armour thyroid while I was vacationing in Cabos. I did without my pills for 7 days. I am home and began taking them, today.

    I began to feel tired, swollen, very cold, and had drier skin. I had puffy eyes, insominia, and too. My body temp was 96.2. My muscles began to ache. I gained 5 pounds.

    I am wondering how long it will take to begin to feel normal again? Should I double my medication dose for a day or so?

    Did you begin to have these symptoms while off the medication or when you restarted the medication?

    My hands and feet began to swell the first day off the medication. Gradually, the other symptoms occurred. My body temperature was 96.1.

    I have taken my pills for two days, now. My eyes are less puffy, and I lost almost 3 pounds. My swollen hands and feet are normal. My temperature is 97 now. I am still cold, and tired, and have slight insomnia.

    I haven't doubled the prescribed dosage, however, I took 1/8 pill more than I normally do. I will take the regular dose, tomorrow.
