  • Not feeling right after doesage change.

    My doesage was lowered to 100 Mcg. I haven't felt right since a couple of days after I started taking the new dose. Depressed, nervous, sweating excessively, shaking, increased appetite among many others. Would these things be from my levels not being correct, that quickly?
