Its a thyroide issue. I was getting Eltroxin 0,05 microgr

Customer Question

Hello,Its a thyroide issue. I was getting Eltroxin 0,05 microgr since more than 20 years, Nrearly 1,5 months ago I had at blood exam. the TSH level 0,14 i,e, low.
Than the MD told me to decrease the Eltroxin I was geting. But I misunderstood doctor's indication and erroneosly I did the opposit: instead of decreasing from the 11 per week Ektroxin (previous) to 9 or 10 ,I took some weeks up to 14 or so, which I didn't dare to tell tehe Doc. .Yesterday we realized my mistake and started,by today to decrease smoothly (10 weekly). However now I waked up with some nausea . I'm 70 yrs old. Some other troubles like constipation etc . But in your opinion the origine of the nausea might be the thyroide issue (take into consideration the drug mistake as well)? Thank you

Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ...

Nausea is highly unlikely because of Thyroid issue . It could be because of some local stomach issue which will improve with antacids and Proton pump inhibitors .

Get antacid syrup and see response .

Regards .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
