I've just joined this site. I've had Hashimotos Thyroiditis for many years and my GP put me on Thyroxine which I only take every other day because it makes me feel hyper otherwise. What is the general feeling about Thyroxine? I dont feel it is making any difference at all but if I take more it has the described bad effect on me. Tried Armour (think thats what it was!) with a naturopath many years ago and it had a similar effect on me to thyroxine, it made my heart race so badly I nearly passed out on the train. It put me off, hence going back to GP and being prescribed thyroxine after that time. Just read about this site on Facebook and so am looking into it all again. From what I read yesterday thought I'd try an iodine supplement but was told by a dietician today I cant take this with thyroxine. In such a muddle but really want to help myself and make the most of my latter years feeling a lot healthier than I do now.
