I believe the drug is affecting my mood, agitated and some depression. I've also experiencing acid reflux and had not had it for quite a long time before the drug. Energy level is somewhat better but not great.

I have been on this medicine for almost 10 years now. I can tell when the dosage needs to be changed because I get tired easily, cold, and my skin gets real dry. I am underweight but diagnosed hypothyroid. They are increasing my dosage today for the first time in 2 years. If I dont take my medicine everyday its like having the flu

Comment:
I experienced hair loss for the first couple months of taking this medication.Its been 7 months and I am back down to my normal weight. I feel better, less tired all the time. I dont see any change in my mood or sleep patterns.But if I go more than two days without taking this medication, I feel lightheaded, dizziness, shaking and neusea.
