Do you see an endocrinologist? If so, it might be worth a phone call. As we lose weight, I am told that we will need a lower dose of medication.

I take my synthroid right before I go to bed at night.. I don't have calcium or anything else that might interfere with the synthroid for 3 hrs prior (which has always helped cut off late night snacking.)
So to answer your question, yes, mine changed. Yes, I don't think it's uncommon to have to adjust. And my suggestion is go with brand name Synthroid & see how you feel and if bloodwork is any better. I also know of others who have thyroid issues who, over time, have to adjust their levels even without surgery.
