After having radioactive iodine some time ago I started on Levothyroxine in March of this year. Since then I have had nothing but problems. The first few weeks I was just ill and since then my insomnia and increased appetite are becoming a real problem for me.On my last visit to see the consultant at my local hospital my bloods showed that I needed to increase my medication, because I was having so much problems with T4 my consultant agreed to trial me on a combination of T4 and T3 but the symptoms just got out of control. I went back to my GP and it was agreed that I returned to just 50mg of T4 but although I am not as bad as before I am still having problems with insomnia and appetitie increase. I know I have to take this medication, but it can't be good for anyone to have to cope with 3 hours sleep each night. I know I can't. To make matters worse i am my husband's carer and also look after my two grandson's twice per week. Has anyone else had these problems and been able to over come them????
