I started taking 25mg synthroid a month ago for a TSH of 3.36. I went for blood work to see if my levels have adjusted after a month and my TSH increased to 3.73! !!! What could cause this to happen? I thought synthroid was supposed to lower the TSH? What do you recommend?

only your doctor who knows your case can make recommendations for your care. In my practice if I did not get results I would add one pill extra per week and retest in 2 weeks. someitmes I will just go to 50mcg if the first adjustment did not work.
