I got my 1st packet of Levothyroxine yesterday. The GP didn't give any advice so I thought I'd take a look on here for some tips...and now I feel like throwing the tablets in the bin. I never thought for a moment that I'd take it and turn into Superwoman but so many people taking the stuff still have weight gain, hair loss, depression, insomnia and many other things that I really don't see the point in taking it. NDT is touted as being the miracle cure but it seems people have lots of problems with that too. I have lots of symptoms but don't seem anywhere near as bad as a lot of you, and but I am so worried that once I take this stuff it will upset the apple cart. I always struggle with my weight and it's very worrying that the four people I know on Thyroxine are all massively overweight. My GP, rather naively I thought, said it made your metabolism work properly and I would lose weight. After reading posts on here I can see that's definitely not the case.
I'm sorry to whinge but I'm sitting here in tears and don't know what to do for the best.
