  • I'm only on 50 mg of Synthroid? How long have you had this? It could be your body keeps adjusting to the medication or, maybe you need a different medication.

  • I have a hypothyroid as well.......when I was first diagnosed I was on Synthroid....cant recall the dosage. Got checked 6 months later and did not need it anymore...supposively....I was OK.

    Well NOW Im back on meds for it....I went from 220 to 280 and just havent been able to lose it as quick as I want! I weighed 283 when I had my son 6 yrs ago...Ive changed my eating habits and its SLOWLY coming off again....

    I am on Levothyroxine 0.05mg... (generic) ....its been an even level now for a few months.
