Discussions that mention synthroid

I started 50 mcg synthroid 12days ago.. and I feel even worse than before I started it..

My TSH was 3.99 when I started it and I feel miserable.. crabby.. weak and tired all the time.. I just want to sleep and have no strength and energy.
It is a really sucky feeling..
I also just started on Synthroid 50mcg 10 days ago and i'm extremely tired. I was so tired yesterday at work I could hardly keep my eyes open. I must constantly get up and walk to attempt to re-energize. My TSH is 3.78.

When I get home from work, if I sit down, I fall asleep. The lethargy has gotten worse lately. Is there any relief in sight?
