Just recently started this medicene and am now experiencing sudden urges of rage?
He'll yeah it does, :). I'm 49 male and was very easy going. 4 years ago i started feeling zapped, tired, exhausted, would fall asleep easily after lunch with tiredness not sleepiness. Dr found TSH very low and prescribed 50 micro grams synthroid daily. After a day I had immeasurable energy and completed cleaning the house and cars by the end of the week. My energy came back to a good normal in 2 weeks. Later I found that I would rip your freking head off RAGE immensely if I took synthroid off cycle, different times of the day. I found it a must to take it at exactly the same time of the day, in my case at 9 AM, and most all the spontaneous rage away. Now I am tweaking the dosage from 50 to 25. As a couple of times during the week I am kept awake till 2 or 3 AM. My TSH is normal now but my tweaks are to remove the slight edginess I feel sporadically each week. Also switched to a generic and it does not give me the hyper choppy edginess that synthroid does. Also tried no drugs for 7 days and I found that exhausted state and my memory of names would become poor. Thank goodness for this technology.
