Comment:
I have been taking 5MCG twice a day. I believe it is a good treatment for some patients. But I feel need a stronger dose. I felt slightly better, but I still extremely fatigued, dry skin, thirsty at all times, depression. My doctor has requested new blood test to check my readings. Hope this helps.

Comment:
I requested this medication after previous use of synthroid with no alleviation of symptoms. I no longer have to take naps to get through the day, my skin is no longer too dry and my antidepressant med is working better. My menstrual cycle is not as severe as before. It did take several weeks for me to see consistent improvement, but that is to be expected.
