    Id call your Dr and ask him about the side effects your having and if they will pass.

    Hi Gary, it takes at least 6 wks for your body to dosage adjustment. I find I'm having similar side effects but my endocrinologist reduced dosage while my dr wanted to increase dosage. Reducing dosage is making me feel worse. Sorry, no real answers for you.

    Hello Gary

    My name is Shelly and I am a nurse in the USA.   I have Hashimoto's thyroid disease since 1987.

    When you go up to a new dose it takes time for the body to adjust.  Work it in very slowly.  Some people take a while used to te new dose.  It takes 6 to 12 weeks to build a level.

    Dizziness, sweating, heart palpitations headaches, should be reported to the doctor.  Some of these are signs of adverse side effects.

    There are Natural Dessicated thyroid tablets and they are made from a pig's gland which is almost like our human one.  If you are in the UK, NHS does not have it. You would have to buy it on your own.

    Normal TSH is between 0.45 and 4.50 and best to be above 1.0 and lower than 3.5.

    I hope this helps.
