25 mcg/day is a high increase, it is better to increase slowly and get the body to adjust, but if this is what your doctor recommended, then follow it.
When dealing with thyroid, one need to be patient, it is not enough to take thyroid replacement hormone but to find the proper dose for you and to be on it for 1 1/2 months at least, it is then that you will heal well .
So there is not much that can be done except playing with the levo dose, and one week is not enough time to see any change, it takes six week as a minimum.
I would recommend to repeat TSH,FT3 and FT4 (the frees are not a must, but it helps if your TSH does not reflect your true thyroid status) in six weeks and to go from there.
