Just began Levothyroxine. 2 weeks on 25 mcg, then raised to 50 mcg. 2 weeks ago. I began taking at 5am in morning. A few days ago I began taking earlier and earlier until last night took at midnight. I go to bed by 10 or earlier, so I wake up to take it. (This is easy since I've slept so poorly for years) RESULT: Last night I slept like a child!! No aches or pains! Woke up at 6 AM feeling rested and awake! Extremely rare for me not to have aches, pains, insomnia. I believe that waiting for several hours after eating is very important. Also, I don't take any other meds, just vitamins, minerals at mid-day. So many people take unnecessary drugs to treat symptoms of hypothyroidism. Try to stop taking as many as you can (especially sleep/pain meds). All of these could interference in thyroid hormone absorption. Also take vitamins especially DHA & EFA Omega 3, avoid GLUTEN and garbage carbs!
