I have suffered from hypothyroidism for many years and decided to come off the tablets completely after debilitating symptoms and not much help from GPs, other than 10mcg difference in dosage here and there. After three weeks I can now go the cinema or a play without falling asleep and get through the day without a nap - in fact, stopping taking the medication, thus far, has given me a new lease of life!
However, I am aware that any day this could change as my body finally runs out of any residual active hormone it may be using.
I think I need an alternative to Levothyroxine. I secretly hope I can continue without tablets at all.
