I have hypothyroidism and my doctor just recently took me

Customer Question

I have hypothyroidism and my doctor just recently took me off of Synthroid 25 mg and put me on Armour Thyroid 30 mg. I was on both, Synthroid 25 mg and Armour 15 mg. I haven't been feeling myself. I've been very tired and sluggish, no energy, no appetite, weight gain. I had my bloodwork taken and my TSH is 1.13, Total T3 is 1.07, and Free T (R) 0.85. Everything is in range. Could I still have hypo symptoms even though my test are in normal range?

Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?

Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 9 months ago.

Yes. It is still possible for you to feel this way even though your lab values are within the normal range.

If this change of medication was done within the last 3 or 4 weeks, I would just give things more time.

If it has been longer then that you might want to see your doctor and have her look for other possible causes of your symptoms.

Does this make sense to you?
