I have regular blood tests and have been given Metformin for Type 2 for the past six months. I often feel the need for a nap mid-afternoon but I put that down to the after effects of lunch! I have been morbidly obese for years and considering that, my energy levels are good. I am 65 this month and still work full-time and intend to continue. I also take Tamsulosin for an enlarged Prostate. Recently I was summoned by the doctor after routine blood tests and told I had mild Hypothyroidism for which I was prescribed 50g per day of Thyroxin. They made me feel terrible - every day for two weeks so I've stopped taking them and feel fine again. Seems like the Thyroxin gives me the symptoms of Hypothyroidism - loss of sex drive, tiredness, headaches. What's the likely outcome of not taking these awful pills? Any advice gratefully received.
