Taking this medicine for two months for low thyroid. Has helped with the tiredness and low energy. Have had heartburn (hardly ever had heartburn before taking this medicine) angry, having trouble with impulse control verbally, unhappy in general (never had this before medicine). Looking for something else to take.
