I have had hyper thyroid for 5 years that then transitioned into hypo thyroid and have been on eltroxin 50/100 for 10 years... After a blod test last week my doctor moved me to 150 but now I sweat easily, have trouble sleeping and am suffering from some anxiety. Does it take time to get adjusted to the new level ? I felt better at 100 Thanks Chris
In your case, anxiety symptoms could be due to high level of thyroid hormone in blood. In that case, you should get your thyroid profile done and consult your doctor for dose adjustment. if you were feeling well at 100, then you can carry on with the same dose or increase it up to 125 rather than 150mg. Rest, you can discuss with your doctor. In case, you need further help, you can ask.
