    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.
