Looking for help.... new to hypothyroidism
Post created 1 week 4 days ago
My primary has been watching my thyroid levels for over a year and finally referred me do an endo. I saw him in January 17 and me put me on thyroid med 75mcg. With 3 month blood tests he says my levels have come up and are good, but I still feel tired and haven't lost any weight, could be the lack of exercise, mid west weather, cold and rain. For those of you using Thrive with your thyroid medication, how do you work it, as Thrive says to take the minute you get up. My doc said to take Thyroid first and wait 3-4 hours before taking any other vitamins...
Just curious how others are doing it.

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!

Interested in hearing from those who take these 2 medications, their experiences, concerns, discoveries of 'not so bad' outcomes? (maybe you've lost a lot of weight and find Prednisone putting it back on but not too frighteningly?? (I know I'm reaching out here...)
due for liver biopsy next week....any encouraging words? ('pain isn't so bad', 'I survived'..whatever!!! already know the horrors...)
Thanks so much ahead!!

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.
