Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I'm taking 75 mcg of Synthroid for Hashi. I feel awful after 6 weeks of being on this dose. I still feel hypo and I'm feeling discouraged. I hope I feel better at the next dose. I definitely feel better than at 50 mcg. I just have a fear that when I reach my optimal dose I'll still feel like crap and that will mean something else is wrong with me.

I have a question though. Does anyone deal with sweaty hands since taking thyroid medicine? Is this a temporary side effect from the adjustment? I also have some chest discomfort that I've read is normal with some people. I'm just wondering if they should go away or if I should expect them to get worse if I increase my dose. Thanks for any help.
