Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I just got diagnosed Hypothyroid about 4 weeks ago with a TSH level of 150. I was prescribed Synthroid 50 for a month and then Synthroid 75 for a month, and then a retest before moving up again. I've been on the Synthroid for almost 4 weeks now and I am not feeling any better. Mostly I am just really tired all of the time. I realize that my TSH level was very high and that it takes a while to adjust, but how long does it normally take to start feeling better?

Any feedback is highly appreciated! Kay
