I can say for sure that stopping your meds will make your doctor very unhappy =). I did it anyway, and proceeded to deal with his disapproving look and words. If you do decide to stop taking them at least call the office and leave a message with the nurse. They need to know what you are doing, and levothyroxine is relatively serious medication. I argued that I should be okay with stopping whenever I felt like the symptoms didnt warrant the drugs, because I was on a very low dose for hashimotos. My doctor didnt agree and said either take the medicine as prescribed or dont take it all.. meh.
so.. I'm not taking it.
And strangely enough my levels got better on their own. =)
But I am responsible about it nonetheless and have my levels checked at least every 3 months.
