hot flashes and thyroid

My Doc recently reduced my armour thyriod meds from 150 to 120. Said my t3 was too high, t4 too low, and tsh suppressed.

I feel fine now, but my hot flashes have gotten worse.

What might the problem me?

I do not take any thing for my peri menopause.

Go back and speak with your doctor. You might need to adjust the thyroid medication or be given additional help for the hot flashes.

You know what?  I realized that my Synthroid was causing me to sweat and have hot flashes!  Here are some side effects that you are supposed to report to your doctor:

headache;

sleep problems (insomnia);

nervous or irritable feeling;

fever, hot flashes, sweating;

changes in your menstrual periods;

appetite changes, weight changes;
