I take Levethroid, and it doesn't have that effect on me.. I know they're in essence the same thing.. But I've found with certain other drugs, that I have different effects even going from name brand to generic or visa-versa. Might be worth a try to just try another type... Even though your doc. Will think you're grasping at straws, and explain to you that their the same thing.. It's worth a try if this is a real problem for you.
I Have Been Diagnosed With Underactive Thyroid And I Take Levothyroxine. I Am So Hungry All The Time And Keep Gaining Weight! Is There Something That Is Safe For Folks With Thyroid Issues To Take To Control The Appetite?
I also take Levothyroxine. I don't have a problem with weight gain and am not hungry all the time. You need to tell your doctor. The strength of your medication may need adjusting.
I've just been reading your question about thyroid. Sorry don't have an answer but wanted to ask you a question; How long did it take for your symptoms to go? I started my treatment in March, despite having bloods come in at normal range now I still feel very out of it.
I'm also on Levothyroxine seroquel XR and Atenolol I really don't know what one causes my weight gain but to curve your hunger get some small bottles of juice to drink it some times helps me!
I have the same problem. I have been on levothyroxine for 5 months now and still increasing my levels after each blood test, but am sooo hungry all the time, and get really shakey if I don't eat. I don't understand why this is.
I have this. I take the same stuff. I have done extensive research about this because I am 41 years old and am newly diagnose...I thought maybe I was in early menopause...NO!!!...I am not one that's hungry all the time but I never was anyway...What I have learned this past year though is that we need to stay away from salt. No chips! No Campbell's soup. No Top Ramen or teriyaki or soy sauce etc...You hve to keep your sodium level atthe human basic though or you might get a little crazy...bi-polar crazy since bi-polar disorder is also a sodium imbalance based disease and a lot of people in the past have been misdiagnosed because of the similiarities. Underactive thyroid also mimics pre-menopause so a lot of 40-45 year old gals never know. I hope I have helped. Just try to MAKE YOURSELF BE ACTIVE that's what I do even when I wanta lay in bed. Ood luck
My husband's best buddy in the military had an underactive thyroid. They gave him radiation treatments and he is on a medication for the rest of his life. He used to be able to eat anything and everything before the radiation. Now he can only eat one meal a day. When he got out of the Navy on a medical discharge he went back to being a dairy farmer. He drinks mega doses of water and is on a very good regimen of vitamins. I know that these supplements can cost money but they will help with your food craving some. I hope that you don't have any other diseases that could complicate this. You need to seek your doctors advice anytime you change your diet. I hope I have been of help to you.
