    I feel great! I have more energy that I have had in years, I am not falling asleep after lunch at work. I don't drink diet sodas all day and have cut down by caffine consumption by at least 1/2.

So far s ... Show Full Comment

    Have used succesfully for years with only one episode of thyroid getting too low. Was corrected and went back on same dose. Recently Rx label said not to take antacids, vitamins or herbals within 4 hours of taking this drug. After years of taking 30 min before breakfast and taking vitamins after eating I was confused. Now that label is no longer on my Rx. ????

    My doctor told me I had a borderline underactive thyroid, as well as several small thyroid nodules. As I was experiencing many of the common symptoms of hypothyroidism, including weight gain, extremely dry skin and fatigue, my doctor gave me the option of trying the medication. I started with a low dose of 25mcg a week ago. So far, the only side effect I have noticed is dizziness, although I re ... Show Full Comment
