I am on T4 at 100 mcg + dessicated at 125 mcg. This is the first time that the FT4 has been in range (usually it is lower). But the TSH is so low. What do I look at? The TSH or the FTs? I want to try to get pregnant soon and am worried about the effect of thyroid on the baby.
Also my prolactin is high (I do have a pituitary micradenoma, but my doc thinks it's not significant becuase it hasn't changed on MRI over past few years)..
Dr. has put me on bromocriptine 2.5 mg/Day. What is a normal dose to reduce prolactin levels?
He told me to retest in 3 months. How long does it take for prolactin levels to come down on bromocriptine. Can i test earlier than 3 months. I would hope to be pregnant within 3 months and I understand that such high prolactin levels can cause infertility.
