thank god I have found this website! I am getting so frustrated at the moment with my treatment for my underactive thyroid. Before taking levothyroxine I managed to lose over 3 stone, now I've been on them for a while (just over a year) I have gained over a stone.
As a slight aside I was prescribed antidepressants, which I came off after 6 months because of side effects and weight gain. I researched on the internet and found a medical study that found the antidepressant I was on (sertraline) depletes Levothyroxine!
My old symptoms of feeling really tired have come back, I feel the cold badly and not being able to shift this weight is really starting to upset me. I recently went for a check up and was told my blood test came back normal, but I don't feel normal and I feel frustrated. My GP won't raise the level of Levothyroxine I am on so I am going to go back in a couple of months.
