    I had a hard time remembering to take this medicine on an empty stomach and at the same time every day. I became accustomed to feeling exhausted and began gradually gaining weight, even while on the medication. I recently started taking Armour, which is a natural thyroid replacement, and have seen a GREAT improvement. SYNTHROID WAS AWFUL AND DID NOT HELP ME AT ALL.

    I had subclinical hypothyroidism for a long time. I had no energy, was always freezing, and gained weight no matter what. Since starting Synthroid, my energy is mostly back, I'm not cranking the heat up to 75 F anymore, and I lost 10 pounds in about 6 weeks. I LOVE this medication!! Feel better than I have in about 3 years. : )
