I feel so much better when I am taking the meds, but haven't been on them for about 4 months now.( due to no health insurance). What are the major side affects to not taking this medication anymore?

Comment:
I find it difficult to take before breakfast. I experience stomach discomfort, and since antacids are listed under substances that are to be avoided, I take levothyroxine just before breakfast, instead of 1/2 to one hour beforeas recommended.
