Hi,
The glucophage can indeed make people feel strange. Be sure to take your thyroid hormone alone, away from other medications to decrease chances of interference. If you are losing weight while on glucophage, that is likely why your thyroid dose is changing around.
You can ask your doctor to check free thyroid hormone levels(Free T3 and Free T4) in between changes in dose if you feel strange--those do not have to wait 6-8 weeks for equilibration.
Take care.
