Does anyone else take Synthroid?
How long before you noticed a difference?

  • How far off is your TSH? The more off it is the longer it will take. My TSH was 40 and I doubled my med (doctors orders) It has been two months and it still isn't under 29. :( My neurologist says he can't dignose any neurological problems until my thyroid is under control for three months first.
    Look for books by Mary Shoman on Hypothyroidism.
    During my research I found that being hypothyroid depletes our bodies of vitamins especially vitamin B12. If you can, research that, I don't remember what source I used for that.

  • Are you taking the actual prescription synthroid, or a generic form? My ex had thyroid issues and for some reason generics did not work for him and he had to take the "brand name" drug.
