I'm posting this because when i began taking levothyroxine i read many horror stories online that almost made me throw away the drugs and quit altogether.
I was diagnosed in March 2016 with a TSH level of over 100. I was put on 50mg and i am now on 75mg, but this may increase further as i am still having blood tests.
Before taking Levo, i was overweight, sleeping a minimum of 12 hours a day, had awful acid reflux and joint pains. Not to mention the constant feeling of fatigue and irritability. Three months later i have dropped over 2 stone, sleep better and have no pain or discomfort at all. Taking Levo has been combined with a healthier diet and an average amount of exercise. I always take it at least an hour before i eat in the morning and i have cut gluten and alcohol from my diet. Small price to pay for the results, both physically and mentally.
