There seems to be loads of negative posts on the internet about the synthetic T4 hormone replacement medication. This probably isn't surprising seeing as the people that would be most likely to post on forums are the people for whom the conventional approach did not work. Was just wondering if anyone has any positive/success stories about how their symptoms got better and stayed better using conventional T4 thyroid replacement? Also mentioning the time that it took would be helpful, and if there were any initial problems etc. Anything, really!
