I have reviewed your query and here is my advice
The given symptoms of anxiety is part of thyroid dysfunction and you have to be very much patience till the proper effect of drug is there, repeat thyroid function test is advisable just to rule out the doubt whether the hormone level is maintained or not, else the dose can not be adjusted like that only, and every after few months dose of thyroid medicine needed to be increases.
Hope I have answered your question, let me know if I can assist you further.

I have been undergoing treatment for Thyroidism for a few months and i was prescribed by my doctor to take THYRONORM 100 mcg daily... Now before 1 month when i checked TSH again, it has become normal and the doctor advised me to continue the same dose. Now that I am getting married after 1 month I want to know whether this medication will have any adverse effect on getting conceived.Please advise me on this.

I am 35 years old woman.I have hypothyroid since 7 years.Earlier while I was on medication(50 mcg dose of Thyronorm),my TSH levels used to come within normal range,which is not the case right now after 2 deliveries.I am taking 87.5mcg of Thyronorm daily,but the TSH is not within normal range.Its showing high value-8.When doctor increased the dose to 100 mcg,within 1 month I started feeling very uneasy-high pulse rate and a lot of tiredness .Finally I switch back to the previous dose of 87.5 mcg and start feeling normal.Pls. guide as to how I should go about this matter so that TSH levels are brought within normal range.
