I was prescribed 25mg levo in April. This has made a modest difference, my finger nails are much better and the low moods have lifted but I still feel very tired and get constipated a lot. My weight has increased by over a stone this year, I am craving sweets because I am tired and I am not exercising. I thought the Dr would up my prescription to 50mg however he flatly refused and said he didn't think I really needed to be on levothyroxine at all. He thinks patients need to have test results of 10 or over before levo is prescribed. Regular exercise would be better for me. I used to exercise regularly and completed the moon walk last year in 6 hours but I have dwindled down to nil. I just feel too tired!
I would appreciate your opinions. Should I see another Dr or try and do some exercise to see if things improve?
