I just started taking this medication about a week ago and i can feel a difference in the way i feel. I have more energy than i ever have. The only draw back is that im always hungry but im watching how much i take in because i dont want the weight gain.

I was recently diagnosed with hypothyrodism 2 months ago. My doctor put me on Synthroid and I have noticed wonderful changes!! This has been a miracle medication for me!! I am no longer wishing I was asleep every minute of the day, and my hair is no longer falling out as much. I have more energy then I can remember and have actually been able to lose 3 pounds so far!!

When I was on this drug I experienced a lot of problems. First of all, I'm an active teenager and having to wait to eat wasn't anything that I wanted to do. I also felt depressed and still had a lack of energy. I don't feel myself when I'm on this drug. I would do anything to not have thyroid problems. =[
