stopped hypothyroid medication about 3 months ago. never had paresthesias prior to levothyroxin but wondering if stopping meds caused this 24/7 symptom now.
Had episodes where gets aggressive and is hyper in early morning and especially between 3-5 pm. The Hyper activity in morning just has started in last few days. Started Latuda 40mg about 8 days ago and then increased to 60mg two days ago to see if the 3-5pm time got better. seems to be more hyper now.
The pill for insomnia called ambien I only take rarely, as is valium. Only when having anxiety attacks. One pill has all the herbs and supplements. It is calledPower to Sleep
