Within 6-8 weeks of starting it, I was feeling great. No more lethargy but still probs w/ weight gain and headaches. I also still have serious mood swings. Completely unloaded on my hubby in a psycho kind of way last night. Sheesh! It is really bad with PMS. I'm going to start seeing a natural med doc soon to see if I can get everything in check w/ supplements. My TSH is higher now than it has ever been, even before the Synthroid and that scares me. I'm worrid my darn thyorid is just going to give up on me!

Just wanted to share b/c we all seem to have somewhat similar situations. I hope the meds work for you ladies but also wanted to share my experience with them. My TSH today was 6.7!
Is your doctor going to raise your Synthroid dose? I'm new at this, but it seems like you are still not getting enough.
