Re: hyperthyroid

Hi Tammy,

I'd have to say that one of the worse symptoms of being hyper is the insomnia and the total inability to calm down. You need to talk to your doc about it. Your dose of tapazole may need to be adjusted cause after 3mos, you should be seeing improvement. When I was first diagnosed as being hyper, my doc put me on anti-thyroid meds but also prescribed inderal (a beta blocker) and vistaril to control symptoms while waiting for the anti-thyroid meds to work. Both helped a lot. The vistaril is a mild sedative and does wonders when I have trouble sleeping or need to just come down some when I'm bouncing off the walls. It's also an antihistamine so it isn't addictive or habit forming. I've tried sleeping pills but they always left me with a hangover and besides, I'd be wide awake again 4hrs after I'd take one. Beta blockers help control the heart rate and the tremor and a few of the other symptoms. It would be worth talking to your doc about them.

I hope things get better soon.

Re: hyperthyroid

Yes, like Helen says after 3 months you should be better. You need your labs checked for sure to see where you are now.

Re: hyperthyroid

How much are you taking, I have been taking 2 1/2 mg per day, and have been doing ok.
Now my tsh came back at 0.07 and Dr upped meds to 7 1/2 mg per day..I do notice that i am not sleeping, but under stress, have a cold, and going through menopause, so thought that was why I am hypre and not sleeping

Talking need some opinion

I have low t3-uptake (16.9) normal T4 (9.98) normal TSH (4.19). A year ago the result were almost the same. I have some symptons that could be Hypert. Fatigue, muscle weakness and increase bowel movement. My question would be What should I ask the doctor to give me what test next. I been on simvastitn 20 mg for about 5 yrs if this could be any help. Also what would the doctor be or should be looking for. thanks
