Re: Secondary Hypo, can't stand watch and wait

Thanks to you both.

Luckily, I was able to get an appt with an Endo doc for this coming tuesday, yay!

So my Primary Care doc, he gave me a one month rx for phentermine since my bmi is now at 30. (30! Unfreaking believable, I've always been skinny!!!). So the deal is this. It will help me not be so darn tired (indeed, I have a TON of energy), hopefully drop a few pounds, and get me through till we can get this thyroid problem situated.

-If I do not lose any weight in one month at my checkup, the phentermine will be discontinued.
-If I lose weight, the max I can lose before I am taken off the meds is 18lbs (based on my bmi), or 3 months, whichever comes first.
-If the endo starts me on any thyroid meds, I stop phentermine immediately.

So that's where I'm at now.....

*Edited cuz I accidentally wrote "30 months" hee hee*
