How long to regulate?

From: Bbagley - 2 years 21 weeks ago

I had half of my thyroid removed in a December 2016. Since then, I have struggled to figure out my correct levels and Synthroid dosage. We finally, after two years, got my TSH to where it was pre-surgery, but I’m starting to think I was a bit hyperthyroid then. Since my small dose increase, I have been having panic attacks, I have been shaky, I am losing weight, and I have been having frequent bowel movements. I have changed my dose back to the previous dose, but I’m wondering how long this is going to last. I know that increasing dosages takes about six weeks but what about decreasing doses? When should I stop losing weight?
Is anyone else as frustrated as me with finding the perfect dosage? Is this just how it goes? Blah!
