My name is asif and im from mysore,well doctor i realy need your suggestion,as my elder sister is suffering from THYROID(THS) since 2 years and she has breast cancer aswel and she has under gone for an surgery.
Well last week we check her TSH report and that has reach to 150 and she is talking eltroxin 100 MG tab.
Do you suggest any other tab because when ever she take that tab she will have tireing day and her hand also will swell.
Eltroxin is the only standard medication recommended and the dose is mcg (not mg). The fatigue/ tiredness is likely to be due to hypothyroidism or low hormone levels which the eltroxin tends to normalize. It would normally take sometime for the eltroxin to stabilize levels in blood after which the symptoms are likely to improve.
Hope this is helpful.
