Hi! I just jumped over from the Ostomy Forum..I have a question that has been on my mind for awhile. I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid about
6 years ago and have been on the same dosage of Eltroxin since then. I find that I am tired lately...been gaining weight (with no changes in my diet) and feel just the same as I did back then when I was diagnosed. My problem is that I don't have a family physician (we just moved to new city and there are no Doctors available)...I was just wondering if anyone here has ever doubled their thyroid meds, and if so, did it help????.....Thanks so much!......Cheryl
