I've been on 75mg of levothyroxine for 10 days now was on 50mg before (3 years ish) the fatigue is so bad every morning I wake up exhausted whether I have had 7hrs or even 9/10hrs sleep but also been suffering with insomnia too. how long does it take for a new dose to adjust levels? can't keep feeling like this :(
