Get it checked. My hypo appeared out of the blue two years ago (Although, I am sure something set it off).
I was prescribed .050 levothyroxine per day.
My TSH is now 4.6
T4, FREE 1.2
Not optimal but within an acceptable range.
I brought it up to my doc and she said okay we can try .075 once a week since it's on the edge.
Just started so don't know yet.
Good luck to you
Tired (I started staying in bed and sleeping till noon)
Brain fog (thought I was getting dementia)
btw I also had other things autoimmune that presented when the levels went wacky.
Just wanted to let you know that Lexi posted back in May...so not sure if she will see your reply.
What is your FT3 at? That is an important number.
you mentioned .075 once a week? and the rest of the week, you're still taking .05 daily?
That is odd.....I would think it would be better to bump of your daily dosage a smidge.
The tabs are scored...so there's that option. You can take 62.5 mcg
