Have been reading posts about peoples experiences of changes to levothyroxine especially those increasing their dose. I wonder has anyone had there dose reduced after many years on the same dose and how did it make you feel. I have been hypothyroid since 1993 and have been on 125mg since Christmas 2001. Recently my blood test showed my TSH to be 0.28 and my dose has been reduced to 100mg. I should add that for many years it was around 2.3 to 2.8 but after finding out I had low vit D around 2012 and started taking2200iu of Vit D3 my TSH reduced slowly to 1. something to 1 then 0.9 which I thought was was good as I thought the Vit D3 was helping the thyroid function. It is often difficult to know what is causing what symptom as I suffer from anxiety. During the last 2 years I have had family illness and a house move. I am awaiting results of heart stress tests to rule out angina as I had been having some problems during cold weather and exercise. Now I realise that these symptoms could be to do with being over medicated as most of the palpitations and heart thumping has gone although this could also be anxiety. It has only been 2 weeks since I reduced the thyroxine. My gp has also reduced the vitamin D dose by quite a lot and also prescribed calcium has I have osteopenia. I have other symptoms which might be to do with thyroid but won't bore you with that. Would love to hear from any one in the same situation. Thanks.
