Hi I've recently had my dose decreased from 150 to 100mg levothyroxine due to unmanageable thyrotoxic symptoms.
My symptoms are episodes of shaking, agitation and palpitations and feeling generally very unwell. I drink a lot of water and symptoms seem to be partly relieved a few minutes after urinating (GP did blood sugar check and came out normal range, though on the higher end of normal).
I'm also suffering nausea and retching which is worst in morning.
These symptoms can on after being on an increased dose of levothyroxine for 3 weeks (150mg) but I've been on the reduced dose a week and still having horrible symptoms. Surely it should be better by now?? How long have others taken to adapt to dose decreases??
I'd be so grateful for advice, I'm going to get a written warning for attendance from work unless I make it in tomorrow but I'm a wreck :-(
