50mcg of levothyroxine
was too much. So was 25, 12.5, even 6mcg. The side effects
overwhelmed me - anxiety, lethargy, tremor, gastric distress, tightness in my chest.
My numbers on 1.05.09 -
Free T3 2.73 (range 1.5 - 4.1)
3rd generation TSH 3.41 (range .5 - 2.5)
Total T4 7.49 (range 4.5 - 12.5)
After a few days on the lowest dose of levo, I stopped taking it. Over all, I feel better without it tho my chest is still a bit tight.
