I have been on 150mg of levothyroxine and 20mg of cytomel now for 3 months. I am still having hypo symptoms. I am so tired, chronic headaches, brittle nails and hair. My doctor said I am on the high end of normal with my T3 and T4 and he thinks I might be getting to much so he might cut me back. When I was on the natur-throid I had energy and still had headaches but not as many. With the shortage I am wondering if I should see if I can get it again at my pharmacy and start back on it. I have a neurologist appt on Tuesday because of the headaches and bad joint pain. I never had this much join pain until I started on the levothroxine. I wonder if it is that causing it. My TSH was .00 when I was there last time. I was on natur-throid before the shortage and my TSH was the same .00. Do you think I should lower my dose of levothryoxine or go back on the natur-throid. I have been feeling awful. Any advice I would appreciate.
