I have been on levothyroxine for about 12 years or so I never really saw a difference from when I started it till now I do suffer from panic disorder and whatnot however I did learn that all the exact same symptoms that I've ever experienced since starting taking levothyroxine and panic disorder are side effects of levothyroxine heart palpitations nervousness anxiety body aches these are all side effects of levothyroxine I've had these problems since I've been taking the drug I assume that it was you know anxiety and panic I go to the doctor and they say my blood levels are okay to continue taking the medicine so I don't know if the medicine is really doing anything or just calling me more problems has anyone tried to get off this medicine if you did did you feel better whether supplements that you took instead I suffer from hypothyroidism

      I did not see improvements when I was on that either.. my doctor switched me to a T3 medication and also NP thyroid.. One thyroid medication in the morning and The other one before I go to bed seems to be helping but Still trying to improve

      If you have lost weight while taking the medication and have not reduced the mcg of the medication it can cause you to go from hypo to hyper. If this is not you, then ask your doctor to put you on natural thyroid called Armour thyroid. It can make a difference.

      Sometimes you will feel sick and have symptoms because you thyroid is still trying to get to a normal level. Once that happens - you'll start feeling good. Regarding the panic disorder, that may be separate.

      The 3t and 4t. 2.68 TSH is considered normal in the medical world- but my endocrinologist has mentioned several times that although it may be normal.. you want your TSH to be lower. 2.0 and under so you start feeling better. How much mg of levothyroxine do you take?
