Can I take 50mg of levothyroxine in one go for thyroid ?

I have an underactive thyroid, was put on 100 mg of levothyroxine, but it was too much, so went to dr and they dropped it to 25mg of eltroxine, i am having the shakes and palpitations a little and wondered if i could take 25mg in the morning and another in the evening. am a bit too scared to take 50mg in one go

Hi Carole

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

It is not dangerous if you take your drug in split doses but it is not advisable.I advise you to see your Doctor again and mention him about the symptoms you are facing and change of dosage.

Take care.
