I had hyperthyroidism. So I took a radioactive pill that got rid of my thyroid. I've been taking this med. since then. It took a good year to get it to the right dosage.

I have been on this medication for 2 years and weigh 15 pounds more than when I started and seem to have less energy. I still have dry skin and hair. Nothing has improved and it is impossible to lose an ounce. Diet and exercise doesn't seem to do it anymore. I think low thyroid must be normal for me and I haven't taken a pill for 2 days.

I've been taking this drug for about a year now. I am still tired, but have quit gaining weight. I haven't noticed any side effects.
