How long after getting proper dose of synthroid (thyroxine) should I begin to feel less symptomatic? last tsh was 23.
Usually on the order: Of two to three weeks. But I should warn you there are some patients that some neuromuscular and psychiatric symptoms can take months to resolve. It's also possible that some symptoms thought to be related to hypothroidism like fatigue or weight, may in fact be related to other factors/issues, even when the hypothyroidism is corrected. ...Read more

Started Synthroid (thyroxine) 75mg blood tests showed TSH went from 47.2 down to 11.1. Do you think increased dosage necessary?
My TSH level was 5.82 when I went to doc and I was put on Synthroid (thyroxine) 50 mcg. Is this the correct dosage? My TSH is now 3.41 is that normal? T3t4 r norm
