    When I went to the doctor I was obese and my thyroid was underactive. The doctor put me on 88mcg of L-Thyroxine. It kept changing until I learned from a nurse to take it 1 to 2 hours before eating. My medication has been at 50 mcg for 2 years now and I have lost from almost 200 pounds to 135. I am very pleased with this medication and have no side effects from it.

    I have been taking this pill for over 6 months now. I'm so exhausted and tired all the time and just want to stay in bed all the time. I started with 25 mg and then 50 and now up to 75 mg.
