Even with the lower dose of thryoid I’m on right now, waiting to increase in a few days, it’s VERY VERY important that I do not miss one. I split my daily dose into two…one about an hour before I get up, and one around 2 pm. This makes it so I can sleep, and yet still function in the ‘sleepy’ part of my day. Well…today, I forgot my afternoon dose. I am sore all over, and my throat is swollen and sore, when yesterday it already appeared to be becoming thinner. Setting alarms on my cell phone to remind me will help. I’m sure I’ll have to adjust times slightly after school starts, but never EVER should I completely skip a dose.
