Comment:
I was diagnosed 7 years ago with hypothyroidism...just about six months after having my second child. I was 25 at the time with no family history.

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.

I still burp a lot but I feel better, waiting 3 wks. ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Started with a .05 mg dose and experie3nced immediate dissiness. Doc lowered the dose to half a pill, dissiness persisted along with a strange feeling on reclining. Stopped pill immediately. Shortly thereafter I developed double vision. Tempting to attribute that to the drug but no proof of that. Glad to be off it.

Comment:
had no symptoms of underactive thyroid, but blood tests showed it. 6 wks on .05 mg, no noticeable change. 6wks on .075 mg, did'nt fall asleep quite as fast when going to bed. 3 days on .1, could'nt sleep at all. Switching from taking it in the morning to taking the .1 at bedtime, could sleep about 4 or 5 hrs. Appear to need between .075 and .1 doseage taken at bedtime.
