It was prescribed at 5 2x daily for 2 wks, then up to 10 2x daily. I also take .50 mcg of Synthroid 1x daily. I do not have a weight problem. (128lbs.) I have Hashimoto's disease and hypothyroidism.

I realize this answer is a bit late and I hope you contacted your doctor to discuss the dose you wanted to take. If you haven't done so already then I suggest that you do discuss it with your doctor.
