Thyroxine medication
Hello Dr, I live in Sydney australia and two years ago i had my thyroid removed.
Ever since I have been on Thyroxine 100mg  six days  a week  and non Sundays
Ever since the endocrinologist told me to cut one dose once a week i feel very tired, shortness of breath and  a strange feel on my chest like tidiness, is this normal ? To feel like this if i miss one dose?
Thank you
Regards
Carmen

Not sure how common that is to feel hypothyroid symptoms missing one dose but I feel the difference. I forgot my thyroxine the other day and I knew about it hours later.  Sometimes I'll have to take an additional tablet to my daily dose when my breathing issues are bad.

Do you have the labs that your doctor based his meds reduction on?  If so, please post with reference ranges which vary lab to lab and have to come from your own lab report.

Before the reduction, were you feeling hyper (overmedicated)?
