I have been taking this medicine for 6 months. It works great for me. I take it before I take my oldest daughter to school and by the time I get back I can eat breakfast. I've had no weight gain and no side effects.

Comment:
I have been taking levothyroxine a little over a year beginning with 25 micrograms to 1 milligram, with a blood test after each change in prescription. I have noticed increased energy and a better state of mind. It has helped me return closer to my old self. I am a teacher and a coach and live an active live style. My one concern is muscle soreness that I noticed after reaching 75 micrograms.

i believe it is helping but too soon to know how much. I am diabetic so I take low levels of it. I dont eat as much and not taking this for anything but thyroid. I think I just get busy on computer and time flys by. I was happy I found why i was so tired and wanted to sleep all the time and im still tired but its too soon to say a lot about this pill but so far so good

Comment:
I took this medication about two years ago, stopped taking it when I went to emergency room with very very fast racing heartbeat. Now I am supposed to go on it again, but this time a lower dose. Just hope my heart does not race. Will try it but am going for more blood work in 5 weeks.
