Hello,

Welcome to ilciniq.com.

A blood pressure of 100/60 is normal for a woman in your age group. However, if you are feeling lightheaded upon standing, then you need evaluation to see if your blood pressure drops when you stand up. Your blood counts and urinalysis are normal. Your thyroid hormones Total T4 and Total T3 are within normal ranges. A single low TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) reading may need confirmation with a repeat test. Are you on thyroid hormone supplements?

What are your height and weight? You have been prescribed an antibiotic (Mahacef plus). There is no reason for you to take medicines. I suggest stopping it. Also, no indication to take Citro Soda (you do not have a urine infection). Your health is fine, and so you can stop all the medicines. Your symptoms may have other causes like lack of sleep, stress, etc. You will need further evaluation. You can start by getting a repeat TSH test done at a standard laboratory. Stop the medicines you have been prescribed currently. Once you have the repeat TSH level, you can get back to me.
