I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me something about this medicine and how it affected them

  • I have been on synthroid for many years. The only "side effects" I experienced were not really side effects. What will happen is your body will start to function as it was supposed to, but wasn't before. I bet that sounds confusing. For example, if your symptoms included being very tired, then you would notice an increase in energy. If you had a very heavy period, it would probably decrease in length and severity. (I realize that this will not apply to your daughter.) However, your daughters development will improve. I hope this helps you.
