Thought I had to share... I've been very depressing for the past months regarding my health issue and now my weight. Two months ago I went to get my blood test and later found out I have neck thyroid. I was prescribed to take 50msg levothyroxine, the first week taking the meds my weight jumped drastically from 102lbs to 107lbs and not only that i feel terribly tired and no energy all the times. Then I stopped taking the meds for 2 weeks I felt much better but my weight seems to be an issue. I went back to the dr again to get my blood test 2 weeks ago and my thyroid level went up as well as my dosage. I'm currently taking 75msg and has been taking for almost a week and the sad part is my weight jumped to 111lbs. I Before I can lose 2-3 lbs easily in just a few days w/out working out but now is so hard to even lose just a pound even when my workout is now double to what I used to. My family dr is not helping at all, so I've been doing research and it seems like everyone has the same issue about weight and depression for taking the meds. All he said is the meds should not make me gain weight but I don't see that at all. When will I be able to see the that or does my body need time to get use to the meds to be effective?
Thank you! :*(
