He said my levels all looked good and was happy one of the thyroid levels was as low as it is. I was happy about this as well. But then he said he wants to lower the dose of my Synthroid. I don't know why this bothers me. I should be happy about being able to take less of something, right? But I'm a little bothered by it. Maybe because I hate changes. Maybe because, if he's so happy about the level now, why does he want to mess with my medicine? Maybe because I feel so good now that I'm worried the change of medicine will change how I feel. Or maybe because I'm on the brand name now and worry the pharmacy will arbitrarily put me on the generic with this change, and with the trouble I had with the generic Lipitor, I'm leery of generics (although the other two meds I take are generic and are fine). Or maybe I'm so tired of seeing doctors I just can't be happy about anything they say or do anymore.
I know, I'm borrowing trouble. In all likelihood, this lower dose will be a good thing and I'll feel even better than I do. The doctor was happy (and he's a tough guy to make happy, lol), so I should be too. . . . I just wish I was, lol!
I do wish I'd thought to ask him what sort of things I should watch out for that would indicate the dose was too low, but I never think to ask things when I'm there.
Sorry to whine and ramble on. I just needed to "talk" it out somewhere.
