I've been on the 25mcg once a day dosage of either Levoxyl, Levothyroxine, and now finally Synthroid for many years. In the past I hardly ever had my blood tested. And since this new doctor six months ago, I have had it tested one time. I felt better immediately on the Levothyroxine another doctor gave me but it eventually wore off or something. I am starting Synthroid brand tomorrow as it is what my current doctor (I changed due to insurance changes), ordered for me originally but since I was in the middle of the other prescription I had to wait to switch. I am hoping the Synthroid will have me feeling better again but can't help but wonder if I need another blood test as well. I havent's lost any weight without real effort on my part and I am not really all that over weight at 145 and 5'4". I just don't want to continue to have disruptend sleep, depression, poor concentratation, sleepiness, and continued weight gain. I want to feel like me again.
