Reaction to Levothyroxine in INFANT?
My 7 week old daughter has congenital hypothyroidism.  About three weeks after she was on levothyroxine, she started not sleeping (like only 15 minutes at a time over a course of a twelve hour day) and would cry constantly.  The doctor said her thyroid levels were testing normal, but lowered her dose and she is now doing much better.  However, her TSH is now high even though her T4 is normal.  I am concerned about this and he hasn't recommended changing her medicine.

Has anyone else had a child who had symptoms like this? What did you do? Did you change medicines? Thanks for any help you can provide.
