this medication works for me

Comment from: Sherwood, 35-44 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: July 12

Overall I think I have more energy. I have only been on it for 3 months and I went from 25 to 50mcg. I do still have days where I have no energy and I wake up almost everyday feeling like I'm swollen. Especially my hands and face. That stinks being I had already gained 15 pounds before I realized I was not just "being lazy" and something was really wrong with me. Hard for a person that is very motivated and responsible. I will continue to take it and see how it goes.

My doctor has not monitored my meds since she put me on it in 2008. Since then I HAVE major mood swings, suffer from depression, gained 30 pounds, my seborrheic dermatitis has gotten worse, and I have zero energy. Either I need a new doctor or a better medication. I also suffer from high cholesterol and chronic kidney disease.

I have been taking a very low dose for the past few years. Have also skipped this medication and have not had any adverse side affects. I would like to discontinue medication and try a natural remedy of some kind.

My doctor told me when we get the dosage correct, it will help me lose weight. So far...no luck! But it did get rid of my goiter and give me a little more energy. I'm hoping we'll adjust to a higher dose after my next round of testing. I also wish my doctor would have found the problem 15 years ago when I first started to gain weight for no reason.

I have been taking this drug for three weeks. I can't say that it is or isn't working for me because it has only been three weeks. I have the same appetite, same energy, and the same mental attitude.
