I have been on Thyroxin for about 10 years after going to my GP because I was cold and had flacky skin. About 2 years ago I felt I was being over medicated and asked the GP advise, to which he said my blood test were perfect and he wouldn't advise me coming off. I insisted that I should come off and we both agreed to reduce it by 25mg and be re tested. This I did and each time my blood test was perfect I can now report that I do not take any medication at all and all my recent blood tests are perfect. In the last few weeks I am feeling very tired and wondered if my levels are dropping I will get another blood test next week.
My doctor tells me that he has never had a patient who has come off thyroxin once they are on it.
Any advise please.
