i just had a tsh test done and had increased my synthroid from 37.5 to 50 mcg a day. my tsh was still 5.29.
the old test range for normal thyroid was .5(?) to 5.0 now it's supposed to be 3.0.
when my doctor increases my synthroid i have major changes - last time i had breakthrough bleeding and now my periods are heavier. ughhh
so of course he wants to increase again - only almost doubling it. i know i will get major anxiety with this change. anyone else sensitive to the change in medication?? about to switch doctors because i think he gets mad when i don't do what he says but i know my body. i'm having hyper symtoms. hotter, faster heartrate, etc. i think this because friday i told his nurse this and she didn't return my call when she had called about the results.
and what have you had better results with - synthroid or levoxyl?
