I am 48 yrs old,and for the first time got my periods after a gap of one week,I have never had any problems with my menstrual cycle doc told me to do some test which are as follows with the test result... Prolactin- result- observed value 19.0 CBC - result - all ok except MPV 11.6 u3, PDW - 19.8% Liver profile - all within range FSH - 2.75 mlU/ml Thyroid - free T4 serum - 13.4 pmol/L , free T3 serum - 4.2 pmol/L, sensitive TSH serum - 3.940microIU/ml. Dr checked my BP which is always slightly low, and my pulse which she said was 68 Now I was prescribed to take thyronorm 25mcg, which makes me loose weight which is ok but my face starts looking bad , and I feel low in energy. Is it right to take thyronorm.

You seem to be experiencing side effects of the medications, so please see your doctor as soon as you can or call.
