Hi Linkie - Firstly, It is quite common for eltroxin to be halved to get to a dose of 0.75ug. Doing it this way may however not always be the most accurate way.
Both contain synthetic thyroxine and its effect should be the same.
The effects that you've mentioned are common with synthetic thyroxine and may be as a result of the higher dose.
I'd suggest trying the dose for another week or two - If no improvent is seen, check with your doc if switching to 1.5 eltroxins (0.5 mcg) would be okay.
