I'm still tired during the day but not as much as before. Still have palpitations and weight is still staying the same (I've gained a lot). Oh and morning temp has not changed at all. I've been a constant 96.1 to 96.7.
Yes, I split the dosage (6am and 4pm)
Thanks Barb, I see her in June and will suggest that it's raised a little. The Doc thinks I'm in the perfect range (hate when they just go according to the lab ranges) She's pretty open to suggestions though...
If you feel you still have hypo symptoms , you still have room to increase, just go slow. This is where fine tuning by splitting grains (pills) comes in handy.
Dessicated med will lower TSH, even more with time. Its thought that meds with T3 suppresses TSH. T3 rules over T4, for pituitary TSH signal. Drs are used to seeing T4 med labs that dont seem to have TSH suppressed that much.
heart Palpitations and "lumpy throat" can take months to go away sometimes after hormone levels are corrected - it is very annoying.
