Just started my "trial" pill packs 2 days ago...take one in the morning when you first wake up every day, same day, without food. Eat an hour later right?
I've been reading up a lot on Synthroid and all I hear is a lot of negativity about it. First of all, who is on it, and will I really gain weight???
I already continue to gain weight before despite diet and running my butt off a few times a week. Right now they have me on a 3 weeks supply of 50 mcg, then a week supply of 100 mcg to see how I feel in a month. My biggest problems I have/had before being diagnosed were(I have been borderline for years, and just NOW got diagnosed with actually being hypo)
-numbness in arms and legs randomly
-random aches and deep muscle pains in arms and legs and hands...feels almost like it's in the bones...
-terribly random headaches where it feels like somebody punched me in the back of the head/neck randomly for a few minutes
-my heart palpitations (just a PAC) have gotten worse and worse and happen multiple times a day now instead of every once in a while
Main concern- what is the best thyroid med out there? (In your opinion) I want to loose the weight I've been gaining, not GAIN MORE with meds- which I know it is important to take them, the pros in this case would weigh out the cons on weight gain...but I'm seriously sick of gaining weight!! I don't want to start loosing hair either.... =/
I know there is another one...starts with an A and is made from pig thyroids, I forgot the name of it something like Armour???...anyone have any luck with that one versus the others??
