Does anyone on here take thyroid medication?  If so what is brand name, is it working for you, how do you feel?

I take Levothyroxine. I feel better than I did without it.

This is what my husband takes - he doesn't have a thyroid due to cancer. He does well on it and has for several years.

That is what my doctor put me on is Levothyroxine.  I have been on it a month or more and I feel no different.  My TSH was/is 68.62.  I am guessing that is bad.

Are you taking it at least 30 min on an empty stomach?

Yes I take it about 4:00 am as I have to get up and go to the bathroom anyway and I usually have my coffee at 5:00 am.

Did they also check your vit d? Mine was crazy low and mimicked hypothyroidism.

I take the generic, Synthroid. Been on it almost 27 yrs.

How do I feel on it? I feel "normal" as in I don't have any issues from taking it.

Yes my Vit D was also low.  She also put me on a prescription for Vit D of 50,000 which I take 2x a week.  I am thinking of only taking it once a week as I have been reading on the dosage of Vit D and most only do the 50,000 once a week and only for 30 days then you go back to OTC Vit D which I take every day.  Can't understand why my Vit D was low.  Not sure the OTC Vit D does much good.

So I am hoping that this Levothyroxine gets to working and I get to feeling better.

It took me about a year to feel better once my vit d leveled out. I take 5000 iu everyday now, even in the summer. Idk why mine was so low either. I work nights but at the time I was outside for a minimum of 2 hours a day in the day winter.

Not to side track. I've been really struggling and the last time I was tested 3ish years ago my TSH was 2.5 ( which I know isn't technically high). I've been doing some reading and some are saying that for an otherwise healthy 23 yr old, the best functioning range is between 0.3 and 2.0. I have a lot of the other symptoms not just weight gain. Curious as to what anybody's suggestions may be. Should I go to a more specific thyroid doctor or am I overthinking,

I just had my thyroid removed Jan 13th. They decided to take it out as it was suspicious for cancer. Thank god that all came back negative. I was having some side effects from the medication: nausea, constantly tired, anxiety. After about a month I an starting to feel pretty normal again.
