Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


This is my first post. Hi everyone!

My doc changed my synthroid dose from .125 to .112 last week, and life has generally sucked since then. I'm totally fatigued, depressed, etc., in a way that is quite out of character. It doesn't help that I have gained almost ten pounds in one week. This is especially discouraging after spending months at the gym and watching my diet to shed the pounds I gained after RAI treatment a year and a half ago.

Is it possible for such a slight change to have such a huge impact? I'm tempted to dig into my old script...it's still in the medicine cabinet.

I will of course ask my doc about this, but I want to hear from 'the people', too. Thanks!
