Kevin, how are you feeling with those latest lab results?  That would be the most important thing to me.  If you were a little hypo, I'd think the FT3 could be tweaked upward slightly, and the FT4 reduced a bit.  In general that would probably be the thing to do, but if you are feeling fine, I don't know that I would change anything.  Taken by itself, that FT4 being a bit above the limit would not concern me enough to go changing  meds.  Just my biased opinion.

im fine but just a little tired sometimes a little achy and i look a little tired . got endo appt. in a hour going to see what she says. i don't know? problem is i felt hyper at  a higher level. . so idon;t know. can they raise you by  2.5  or is that too low. also my numbers seem to stay the same as it was on a higher dose?/ the free t4 and freet3 justthe tsh moved  wierd.

doc . kept  me same dose. say she thinks numbers are good, but now wants me to split the dose in half. says that maybe i need the t3 spread out more during the day. to try this before anything else. retest a month or so. so sounds reasonable. make sense , ill give it a try, Kevin
