hi ok so I have been on levothyroxine for 3 days now and I take it first thing in the am on an empty stomach. I have been noticng that I am having an uncomfy feeling of my body being in overdrive or feeling overstimulated on and off druing the day it is ok cuz it will motivate me to workout or whatever but at night time say 12 or so hours later its worse I take sleep meds (valerian and melatonin) to help me sleep and that doesn't even help anymore. I haven't had a sound sleep in 2 or so days.
is this a side effect for me and will it stop once it is in my system. I am on a very low dose of 12.5 mg thank god
