Since day 1 of starting levo (50mcg) two months ago, I have had strong acid reflux heartburn symptoms every day. I've mentioned this to my GP twice, and the response was simply a shrug of the shoulders, and a presciption for lansoprozole, which I haven't bothered taking, because I understand there are plenty of downsides to such medication.
I'd like to experiment by coming off levo, and seeing if my thyroid behaves itself. I don't have hashimoto's, and I wonder if my thyroid malfunctioned recently by me simply eating WAY too much cruciferous veggies, which I have now completely stopped.
I was thinking of cutting my pill up, and taking 3/4ers of it for 10 days, then 1/2 of a pill for another 10 days, and then finally 1/4 of it for another 10 days, before stopping.
Good idea? Bad idea? Thanks for any advice.
