Hello I wonder if anyone could give an opinion on this. I have been hypothyroid since 1993 now age 72. During most of that time I had been stable on 125mg of Levothyroxine, TSH 2. something. 3 years ago I moved over 200miles. during that time I had my dose reduced to 100mg as my routine test showed level to be getting lower I wish I could remember the level but I think it was about 0.8 or 9. It was a time when I was having tests for angina which turned out to be negative. I also started to suffer from anxiety with other ongoing health problems as well. I think my next blood tests level were around 1-2. A few month ago I was speaking to the pharmacist about another tablet and whether to take it with food and he said that I should take the levothyroxine when I wake leave at least 30mins then take my other tablets then have breakfast which is what I have been doing. I should add that I did try taking it at night but was difficult because I had at the time other tablets to take. I have just had had my yearly blood results and my TSH is 0.6 range 0.4 to 4. I know all about the difference of opinion on range and optimum levels. Do you think this is too low. I have other problems at the moment namely diagnosis of mild fibromylagia against background of widespread osteoarthritis and have recently had to have a course of B12 tablets. I have put the lower level down to taking the levothyroxine when waking. It is hard to know what symptoms are from what and awaiting physio for shoulder so get pain and tingling etc from that. I would just like to feel well as far as you can with pain. Anyone like to comment on this. Thanks.
