Synthroid? - March 9th 2010, 07:34 PM

I've been on the medication for a little over a week. It's actually making me kind of more tired than usual. Am I on a high enough dosage you think? Or should I wait 2 or three more weeks?

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

Hey there Holly,

If you're taking it for the main purpose of the medication, I really think you should mention this to your doctor. Though, the website does mention taking about 2 weeks for noticeable effects to occur, I'm assuming it should be having the opposite effect to what you described.

Signs of not getting enough medication:

dry, puffy skin
muscle aches
weight gain
My suggestion is coming from that specific portion of the site. If you are feeling any of these things, which you said you are, I think it would be in your best interest to talk to your doctor when you can. It might be a sign that this medication needs to be increased in order for the desired results to occur.

If you want to read up more, I got all this information from here : http://chealth.canoe.ca/drug_info_de...4641&page_no=2

I really hope this goes well for you! Good luck.
