My Dr. changed me from Synthyroid to Levothyroid and for the first time since I have been hypothyroid I have felt better and my body temperature is now normal! This was quite by accident. My TSH level was low and Levothyroid comes in more exact dosages than Synthyroid so he had to change me to Levothyroid. I have been hypothyroid for over 20 years and every Dr. has always given me synthyroid. Until about a year ago, my TSH was comming up normal but my body temperature would always run low like 96 to 97Â°. They never seemed concerned so neither was I, but I never realized how much better I could feel until this new Dr. changed me to Levothyroid. I have All good days, instead of some active days and some sluggish days. I am sooo pleased, I had to post. Has Anyone had this experience with any other thyroid medication, and what did your Dr. do? I am just wondering why it took so long, although I am very happy with what I have now. I have been on Levothyroid for 8 months now, so I think this is going to last, hopefully. Oh, and I have lost 28 lbs. in 8 months, too. I haven't really dieted, just ate the same.
Does anyone else have experiences with thyroid medication?
