Thyroid 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

Some people are sensitive with skipping a dose once a week.  In those cases, using a lower daily dose (ie, 88mcg) may be better for you.  Others will take a half tab once a week rather than omit entirely.
