      Hi, Johanna:

      The only way your doctor is going to know whether a treatment is working for you is for you to communicate your symptoms to him/her. When it comes to drug treatment, in particular, different bodies respond differently to different dosages, respond well to one drug and not another, etc. So, yes, I would say that you need to tell all this to your doctor. It would help, too, if you can remember approximately when symptoms started. And, depending upon WHEN in September your next bloodwork is scheduled, you might consider not waiting until then to ask for new bloodwork to be done. If it is the end of the month, for example, I would not wait. I would call now.

      I hope you are feeling better, soon.

        Hi I have been reading this list for some time now and hope someone
        can answer my question.

        I’m prescibed 200mg PTU + 0,1mg Levothyroxin daily and it seems like
        an odd dose to me. I have been eating PTU since March and Levothyroxin
        since June.

        I’m not feeling too well. I’m tired, out of breath, have no brain and
        feel like crying all the time. I have lost the weight I gained between
        March and June so I’m back were it all started.

        What do you all think? What should I tell my doctor when I see her
        next? I will take new tests in September so I will know more then.
