    I am have been on vyvanse for 6months and I LOVE IT! However, I was concerned when I started loosing hair. The thining of my hair was constant and noticeable enough for me to seek help. My blood results showed a slightly low thyroid.
    I have sense been put on levothyroxine at the low dose of .25 my dr referred to it as a (baby dose) I have taken the pill consistently an on an empty stomach as suggested for a week now.
    I have been experiencing nothing but problems... Before starting the levo. I was tired all the time, but taking Vyvanse fixed that. Now, I can't fall asleep or stay asleep, but I'm tired all the time and I feel heavy. In addition, my heart pounds sometimes and races others. When I do get up for the day, I start with a relatively normal to high energy level considering I got no sleep the previous night. Vyvanse has become much less effective and my concentration is suffering.
    Could all this be caused by the .25 dose? Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? I have only been on this for a week and I'm hesitant to speak with my Dr. I don't want to be on the NDT thyroid pill. I have been Vegan for 9 years and the idea of taking that is sickening to me.
    Do I need to wait these symptoms out? Please help!

    I was taking Finasteride and Levothyroxine thyroid drug in 2015 and had a side effect.

    However, due to major hair loss in past 16 months, I have started taking Finasteride along with my thyroid medication.

    I want to be part of this group to find out if it is ok to take both the medicines together.

    My RA is mild. The methotrexate caused my cholesterol to rise. The Lipitor caused my blood sugar to rise. The rheumatologist denied that the Methotrexate did this but I found research by peer reviewed journals that reported this finding.

  • Help

    I have been on depo for a good portion of my life due to endometriosis. The first time I went off it, I developed pcos and Hasimotos. Leading to two misscarriges. But after a few years and treatment, I was able to conceive and have two beautiful girls. Decided to go back on depo for BC and to help the symptoms of pcos. Up until this last April when I decided to have a tubal ND go off of it. Well 8 months later my Hasimotos is back with a vengeance. I have a goider and two nodules after my ultrasound. My TSH is normal due to me taking my levothyroxine bit my antibodies are currently at 2000. I swear the depo controled it all and kept it in line. But I do believe it was what caused it all in the first place. I am so tempted to go back on it. I have gained 30lbs just since my tubal, my periods are are so hard and I can't keep a tampon or a pad on more than a hour and it's full. I have more depression that started. I just don't know what to do. Awaiting a. Appointment with my endocrinologist to have a biopsy done of my nodules and what he's going to do. I have a feeling he's going to kill it, remove it, or put me on more meds to help. Any suggestions??
