In brief: Compliance with med
Firstly are you taking your medication regularly .
And do you take the medication consistently on an empty stomach? It is typical for us to reccomend taking the medication on an empty stomach first thing in the morning to wait 30 minutes before taking anything orally . It maybe worthwhile to change the levothyroxine to synthroid to prevent fluctuations in blood levels.
