Brief Answer:
Do not discontinue thyronorm tablets

Detailed Answer:
Dear madam

Welcome to healthcare magic

I reviewed your details carefully and I came to know that you have missed some of the vital points.

You should have never stopped thyronorm tablets beacuse usually these tablets are for life long and stopping these tablets can causenon specific complaints such as increased weight, increased body fat, loss of appetite etc.

Your headache might be due to your discontinuation of thyronorm.

Secondly your dosage might be enough but to know it you need to take the tablets continously for some days and repeat the test again. Review with the results. Grosly if your weight is neutral then dosage might be ok, but if you are gaining weight then dosage might be not sufficient

You can get eye check up done for headache

Hope this information is helpful

Hi, for a while now I have been getting dizzy and light headed when I stand up. I ve also been extremely tired to the point where I feel like I can t do anything. My GP tested my thyroid and my iron levels and they were fine but i m still getting these symptoms only now for the last few days I have been extremely thirsty, especially in the evening where I can drink 5 or 6 large glasses of water in the space of 2 hours. I am thinking perhaps I should go back to my GP for more tests I also suffer from constipation and stabbing , almost crippling, stomach pains due to this.

My history is taking Lisinipril 10mg, effexor 225, amaryl 1mg, Levothyroxine 100mcg and warfarin.5mg . Am overweight all my life and have type 2 diabetes and underactive thyroid. Recently abt a week ago my Dr put me on Levothyroxine 100mcg bcz tests showed I was too low. Have been off all levothyroxine a week now & blood sugar is being like 84-99. Before it was 99-112. Between Levothyroxine and amaryl----would this change of no levothyroxine and only the amarly plus the other daily meds be causing this change? I feel better mentally and overall better and have more energy. Will appreciate your input. Thanks. Am 74 and generally healthy.

Thank you. About three weeks ago, I noticed a slight redness of skin at throat area. It waned and is now back on all over the front of my neck. The skin seems puffed and is very red. No small or large bumps on skin. My throat is mildly sore.
