Hi Rav4 -

How long have you been on the levoxyl? The symptoms you describe are of hypothyroidism not so much side effects of the medication. Are you hyper or hypo? Levoxyl and other replacement hormones usually take 4 - 6 weeks at least to reach even remotely therapeutic levels and then they will do bloodwork and evaluate the need to increase your dose. Post you lab values if you have them, some of the people on this site are whizzes with those numbers.

Hang in there. It can take a while for hypo to be regulated. I'm almost a year on Synthroid and I still don't feel right.

Keep us posted.
