Hi - can anyone help? I've been on Levo for 8 months now since under active thyroid diagnosed and I didn't connect the two until now but I'm passing urine much more frequently - at least three times in the night and frequently in the day - when the need arises I just have to dash whereas before diagnosis I didn't. My stomach is bloated - I asked for test for bladder cancer as my mother died at 60 and this was done and I was completely fine. It's not a listed side effect for the drug but has anyone else suffered this side effect? My bladder aches after passing urine for about 5 minutes. I was wondering if there is something in the drug that I'm allergic to.
I've gained a stone since going on this medication - I thought if you're on the right dose you don't gain weight? My doctor said last blood test a month ago showed all levels perfect although as I'm new to this I didn't ask for them and wouldn't up the dose despite weight gain (it's my age he said ) although I've always been same weight throughout adulthood until now - I'm 58 so went through menopause 8 years ago with no weight gain. I'm tired but then again the weight gain could be a cause. Help? Many thanks.
