    synthroid side effect?

    Hello. I just need your advice badly. I was diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism about 6 months ago. My doctor initially prescibed synthroid 50 mg, I used it for 4 months, but then, I noticed that since taking that medicine, I've been continously gaining weight. I asked my doctor about it and she told me that It has nothing to do with synthroid, she said that synthroid would even help me lose weight because It will speed up my metabolism. The last result of my tsh level is normal, that's why my doctor changed my prescription from 50mg to 25mg. I took a risk, I stopped taking synthroid (my doctor is not aware of this), and i have yet to see my doctor again for another blood test. I just want to know the side effect of not taking the medicine. My Doctor also informed me that synthroid is for "long term use", Does it mean that Im really bound of using this medicine for as long as live? regardless if my tsh level is already normal?
