Please help, I'm still not stablisied, been on levothyroxine since feb 14. Everything has been quite bad since being diagnosed but recently I am so so angry. I have an app on the 9/11 but I just wanted to see if anyone was the same. 

Also just received a txt from boyf saying that I don't make him happy anymore which is tearing me apart. We had a row the other day and I ended up pushing him but he told me to stop and I kept pushing Nd pushing him till he eventually told me he couldn't handle me anymore. I don't want to lose him but I am devastated to hear that I don't make him happy. Don't get me wrong I know what I did was uncalled for but I am besotted with him and don't wanna lose him. 

Can anyone help. I've tried counselling and it doesn't help. I'm also on 60mg anti depressant as well fluoxetine xx

    what dosage of thyroxin have you been given?

    maybe send a nice note to boyfriend apologising for pushing him...explain you think you're over-medicated and that you really appreciate him and could he be around for you at this time. Don't be too desperate sounding...but you can ask for help....its ok to do that.

    could you bite the tablet in half and try that til you get seen again?

    Hi Kelli,   You certainly are having a miserable time there.  It seems to me that your levothyroine dose is too high, therefore putting you into a hyperthyroid state.  If you research hyperthyroidism you will most likely recognise a lot of the symptoms you are suffering from.  Eg.  Feeling of anxiety, feeling nervous, irritable and unsettled, insomnia, heat intolerance because your metabolism is running too fast and your body is being pushed to the limit by excess medication and you are becoming exhausted and frustrated.

     You did not give any information about what your diagnosis was back in February.  Were you told that you were hypothyroid at that time?  Also, how were you feeling before starting the medication?  Do you have your blood test results for that time?  If so could you please post them with their ranges.

     Also when did you start taking the fluoxetine?

     Please write back or pm me if you wish …

    Hi Kelli,  You have not provided much information re. blood test results so it’s difficult for me to give an accurate opinion about what’s going on with you.  Although the jump from 25mcg to 100mcg Levothyroxine seems quite a large amount and perhaps a bit fast.  I assume that you had some other dose in between those figures.  It seems that you are hyperthyroid and it’s a very unpleasant way to be but don’t worry it can be corrected by lowering the dose.

     As you are having a blood test next week I suppose you will just have to carry on until then and then see what the results are.  Be sure to tell your doctor ‘exactly’ how you feel and what your symptoms are and don’t be put off by their insistence at looking only at the numbers in blood test results – your symptoms are most important!  ‘Always’ get a copy of your thyroid blood test results so that you can see for yourself how you are progressing.  You are entitled to have a copy of the results.

     As you are a new thyroid patient you must research ‘everything thyroid’ in order to gain the knowledge that you will need to help yourself manage things in the future.

     I would seriously research ‘fluoxetine and thyroid’ if I were you.

     I hope you will be feeling better soon.
