I went to see my endo on 6/25/10 and he told me I went from Hyper to Hypo:
Meds are cut back. From: 4/16/10 Metoprolol 50mg 1 tab daily to
6/25/10 Metoprolol 25mg 1 tab daily for 1 wk then discontinue.
From: 4/16/10 PTU 50mg 2 tabs 3x a day to
4/28/10 MMI 10mg 4x a day to
5/19/10 MMI 10mg 5x day to
6/25/10 10mg 2x day
The past two weeks I never felt so good. 6/15/10 - 6/26/10. I had a sense of well being, slept 4 or 5 hrs.when I used to need 8, had tons of energy (was like the energizer bunny), and was upbeat and very positive. My old self. Yaaaahh! Doc & nurse saw how good I was feeling.
I wish I had bottled this!
BEST DAYS SINCE DIAGNOSIS: 6/15/10 - 6/26/10
This is when I was going from Hyper to Hypo.
What the ??? Dr. saw me on Fri., gave me the news above, and Mon. my mood is down, I have trouble concentrating, I'm bloated like never before, and feel like I can take a nap in the afternoon and have! This is within 3 days ( I WENT FROM TAKING 50mg MMI a day to 20mg a day.) Still getting 4 or 5 hrs. of sleep, but I am constipated like never before (methimazole). Very uncomfortable. Started eating oatmeal and prunes every day. Still eating alot of fruits, 1 veggie a day (need to increase veggie intake), yogurt daily (check if dairy is ok), and drinking 6 glasses of water daily. I'm pretty miserable and I know the constipation has alot to do with it. May have to seek other alternatives.
Called Docs office on Mon. ( 6/28/10) about the quick change in symptoms since he reduced my MMI from 50mg a day to 20mg a day.
