Afraid to take these Meds

Hi everybody,
Some already know I went in for a surgery Oct 20th and made it thru fine, got home late the next day. So I'm a little over a week post-op. Before I went in I had bloodwork done for the hospital but also for another doc unrelated to the surgery. Their office called about results when I was gone so I called Monday of this past week.

The nurse says that the bloodwork came back low thyroid and called in Generic Synthroid low dose to the pharmacy. 50 MCG once a day and see him in 3 months. I read up on side effects and some sound so anxiety insommnia related I'm like, hell with this shit!!!

I feel more hyper than hypo thyroid--- and it comes down to fear and trust (lack of) regarding my doctor. I really wanted to talk to him lots of times b-4 the hospital and no calls back. Now he wants me to take something I'm afraid of with no discussion.

I'm afraid I'll end up worse. I have taken it yesterday and today but am debating tossing them out. Anybody tired of feelin like a drug reps dream? Or anybody ever hear of feeling hyper but being hypo? I know this is a medical question but I posted it here cuz my fear is of course on the mental side. Thx,

HiYa Jake,

Here's all I know...My mom, who is 72, takes synthoid and has been for 8 or so years. She has been okay with it. They do some bloodwork every now and then to see if the doseage is still correct.

You know, you must have been feeling this way for a bit so why not call again, say "hey look, I'm not taking this med until I speak with the doctor. Please have them call me." Have your questions ready.

Could it be your anxiety gives you the hyper feeling? Ask him that.

And then, my friend, you will have to decide with the information what you are going to do. I think you have time to talk to the doctor before you go any further and get yourself more worked up.

In my absolute humble, non-medical, opinion.
YEAH !! :evil:
