I was diagnosed 13 years ago and was originally put on levothyroxine however taking this medicine just made me feel worse and honestly I haven't been completely compliant because I couldn't cope with how it made me feel. I could go months without taking meds and function normally every day. However around 3/4 months ago I saw my doctor who changed me on to liothyronine even though over the years I have been told there is no alternative. I have taken them regularly and been having my levels checked but my levels are still way out. Doc then referred me and I had my first appointment in the endocrine clinic. The consultant was really nice and has now put me on 75mcg levothyroxine along with 10mg liothyronine all together in the morning and 10mg early evening. Now I'm having serious problems sleeping at night not so much getting to sleep but waking up early hours and being wide awake for 4-5 hours and suffering the next day with a real muggy head and just feeling pretty rubbish. I'm not sure if it's related but can anyone help!?? I am at my wits end and feeling really down now.
