Been aking Levo. since October, I haven't had my period since. There are days where I can stay in bed all day with out caring about the ovbious outstanding responsibilities I have. Some days I wake up with a headache I can't shake off, others I'm so sick to my stomach I1 can't eat, even though I'm starving. I've had random panic attacks over things that never bothered me before, and I go from normal to uncontrollabley angry in a second flat. I sweat when I work, and I NEVER sweat before, NEVER!! I've also become much more anxious over the little things, worryign about stuff that will clear itself up in a minute. 20 Female 2009-12-12 07:31:05.983

Levoxyl (levothyroxine) 275  
Abnormal thyroid hormone blood levels
My endocrine doctor prescribed levothyroxine to suppress the cancer from reoccurring in my thyroid. Since Feb 2006 he has increased the dosage from 50 mg to 275 mg. He increased the dosage to 275 mg in March 2009.

In June of 2009 my diabetes suddenly became uncontrollable. I also since that time have loss over 25 pounds due to excessive urination. My life has been a living hell since I began taking levothyroxine. When my doctor is preparing me to undergo a full body scan for cancer he stops me from taking the levothyroxine for a 45 day period.

After a 30 days of not taking the levothyroxine I am unable sleep, experience irregularity, weight gain, hearing loss and a host of other problems that I think are all related to not having levothyroxine in my system. Currently as I previously mentioned I think the dose of levothyroxine at (275) mg is entirely too much for my body to handle.

I am currently having to take 2-3 times more insulin to control my diabetes. I've had type 1 diabetes for over 45 years and never had this type of problem with controlling my diabetes.

I am unable to maintain fluids in my system and have loss over 25 pounds since June 2009. Can anyone out there give a any suggestions or comments? My email address is derek.p.jackson@navy.mil.

T hanks so much.

Synthroid (levothyroxine) 25mcg 9 weeks
Underactive thyroid gland ("hypothyroidism" - low levels of thyroid hormone - may cause subtle or extreme loss of energy; sluggisheness; hoarse voice; heavy menstruation; puffy face/eyes; pale, dry skin; weight gain; sensitivity to cold; constipation; muscle aches/stiffness/weakness; increased cholesterol levels; anemia; hearing loss; elevated CK/creatinine phosphokinase; abnormal liver blood tests; thinning of the hair and eyebrows; loss of body hair; depression; decreased body temperature; coma)
i started taking synthroid about 9 weeks ago. 25mcg a day in morning. I am subclinical and had all kinds of symptoms such as unable to sleep, weight gain, tired all the time, loss libido, heavy menstruation, cold all the time and many more. I was taking a natural product and stopped when my endo prescribed synthroid. I have not felt good since. I was extremely tired and lost alot of my allready thin hair that i had left. My skin got even dryer than before. The only improvement i have noticed was my libido seems a little better and my menstruation was not as heavy. I still have no energy and believe that synthroid is not a drug of choice if we all had one. 41 Female 2009-11-03 11:57:13.877
