I would like to know experiences of those taking Levothyroxine while pregnant. I just got my prescription and wanted to do some research first.

My levels were at 67...many times higher than normal. She put me on 100 mcg of Levothroid and I ... Show Full Comment

I had my thyroids removed on 3/27/08, they were making me very tired, I had problems sleeping because I had problems breathing, they had grown so large that they had to be removed. Two weeks later they started me on levothyroxine 100mcg, they gave me gas, I was always burping so when I went back in two weeks they increased by dose to 150mcg. I still burp a lot but I feel better, waiting 3 wks. ... Show Full Comment
