Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

Hi Barb;
Took the necessary blood tests yesterday for my Nov.appointment with my Endo. I lowered the dosage of my Synthroid myself,can't take the heavnest in my chest, my heart beats hard...plus when its time for bed can't sleep because it seems my engine is going too fast....all of this for a dosage change of .75 to .80 to.82 daily in the last 6 months. I know my Endo probably thinks I'm a little nutso.My Endo is pretty good at listening to me .I'd rather sleep better at night plus the lower dosage keeps my weight in check.Do you think my TSH numbers are that far off ? Sometimes I get tired of even hearing me talk about this again.Thanks for taking the time.
