Hi guys, my very first post. Be nice
I have an underactive thyroid, and am taking Eltroxin.
I took one tablet every day for 2 years, then because of a misunderstanding with my GP, i stopped taking them altogether. My Doc retired, and i went to see my new GP about an unrelated issue, and the Eltroxin subject came up.
When she realised i hadn't been taking them, she totally lost the plot !!
Prescribed 2 tablets per day
4 weeks later - blood test
Low counts, results in 3 tablets being prescribed.
Went on a nightmare holiday in Spain July 2014
Sweated buckets for two weeks.
Stayed in the hotel room with air con on FULL almost every day.
Have lost about 20lbs since July(i need to as well).
Started losing hair
Had new blood tests after holiday, and went down to 2 tablets.
Problem is, i still have the above side effects, and my GP has gone off to Indis on holiday for 2 weeks .
Can anyone help / advise me ???????
