Taking Thyronorm in hypothyroidism, is there any side effects ?

I have been suffering from Hypothyroidism for the past seven months.My TSH level was 11.3. After taking Thyronorm 25mcg i developed digestion and constipation problems. My doctor discontinued the medicine.My thyroid symptoms started and my TSH level soared to 12.7.Thereafter i consulted a specialist who prescribed Thyronorm25mcg for three months.After that my TSH level came down to 7.5.Last month when i consulted my physician, she gave me a dose of Thyronorm 50mcg for three months.After i started the 50mcg course i began to feel headache ,constipation,digestive problems,feeling too hot sometimes,high pulse and increased heartbeat and panic attack with a fainting sensation. While i was taking Thyronorm 25mcg i was normal. Are these problems due to the overdose? Please help.

If its overdose, the TSH levels will come down ..evn below normal. So let your dr decide the dose. Talk to him, tell him your concerns.
You can take homeopathy, along with these medication, will definitely give you relief, and may reduce the dose of thyronorm in some time as the condition is not very old and TSH no too high.
