Thyroxine

Posted by @kinvin2011, Feb 16, 2012

Dear Doctor,
My wife’s thyroxine levels have been fluctuating and the doctors keep giving her thyroxine. After she had Costi & Oxapro in December 2011 she is much better but the doctors keep prescribing Synthetic Thyroxine.
Can you please explain the FT3 and FT4 levels and if she need to take more thyroxine
FT3 FT4 Thyroxene Medication

Do you mean her Thyroid levels keep fluctuating?

It is important that she takes what the Dr tells her. She’ll have to be on Thyroxine probably her whole life.

I’ve had hypothyroidism since 1989. Have seen over 10 specialists and none have been able to find the appropriate dosage of levothroid. I have found that by taking 1/2 a dosage in the morning and 1/2 in the evening my symptoms like being sleepy all the time, have normalized, now I sleep 7 to 8 hours and don’t get sleepy in the daytime.
