[img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/yawn.gif[/img]I was recently diagnosed with hypothroidism, and my doctor put me on Synthroid (25mg). I have only been on the medication for a week now, but I wanted to know how long before I start to feel a significant difference. My doctor told me to come back in a month... should I go back sooner? I really want to start feeling better sooner! thanks :bouncing:
I have been on Synthroid since I was 23.. I am now 38. 15 yrs!!!!!!!!!!!! I also have Hashimoto's..When it goes up and down............alot................
I get my blood levels checked every 3 months.. TSH>..
I know when I am feeling tired..............but sometimes its hard to detect when your thyroid is off..
I have been on doses at 150mg..all the way to 75 mg..I am now on 100mg. (1.0).............
As long as I get monitored i am good...........to go! Thank god theres a pill out there for this!!! I was super lethargic when I first got diagnosed..skin broke out like crazy..............sluggish and tired..always tired..........And i am an energetic person..plus I gained 15 llbs..I was thin all my life..........so no one understands why i got this...............oh well................. but everything is ok!!
