I've been on thyroxine for years and have been told I will be on it for life as I've an underactive thyroid. I was wondering what would happen if I just came of it and gave my body the chance to sort itself out without the thyroxine? Not been brave enough to try it has anyone else felt the same and come of thyroxine once they've been prescribed it? I would be really interested to know how they got on.
