I was put on this drug to counteract my under active thyroid condition. At first, I was OK. Gradually, I gained weight, have developed a rash and my stomach constantly growls, even after eating. I have also noticed increased frequency of migraines and symptoms appearing to be depression (I have not been diagnosed with this). A sort of mental fog also has appeared.

Comment:
On this last blood work results, the thyroid level had gone down. This new doctor said she had to lower the dosage of synthroid because the level had gone down. My main doctor has always raised the dosage when the level had gone down and lowered the dosage when the blood work results showed the level had gone up. Whick is right?
