Started taking this med month and a half ago. Haven't seen much improvement, but I can't fall asleep until 3-4am. I toss and turn. My thoughts just go blank and I can't remember what I was just thinking about 15 seconds before. I took a sleeping pill and it didn't really work. I'm so tired of not sleeping!
About two weeks after beginning Zetia, I started to have severe itching after a shower. It also happened when I washed my hands or face. The itching was in the areas that touched water, except for my torso area. It is unrelenting for about 45 minutes. It is like being tortured for 45 minutes. I tried hydrocortizone, moisturizer, took oral benedryl. Nothing worked except for time. I discontinued Zetia today and hope to be itch-free soon!

I have been suggested Doxycline for 5 days (2 per day) before my frozen embryo transfer. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis - hypothyroidism and I take 125 mg of synthroid per day. Currently my TSH is 0.41. Would taking the above dosage of Doxycycline increase my TSH level?
