What are the side effects for taking levothyroxine?

4 days ago I started a cream mix of estriol, progesterone and testosterone made for me at a compounding pharmacy. I have been taking levothyroxine for a couple of years, It was recently upped to 88 mcg. I am 55 postmenopausal and go from very depressed to not being able to shut off my mind and sit still. My sister and a grandmother had breast cancer. I have taken a Chinese herb the past 2 years before this. Am I taking the right thing? What I the side effects. I have been weepy and crying and blah the last two days.
