I was diagnosed 7 weeks ago with Hypothyroidism. I am also a diabetic so this was my endocrinologist that prescribed me Levothyroxin 50mg. I have always been a little overweight. But I have gained like 7 lbs since taking this drug. I haven't been on a strict diet, and I feel hungry all the time. Its hard to not cave and eat everything! Does this med make anyone else hungry? I also have major hot flashes, I cant sleep well, I am very antsy and have a hard time concentrating. When im at work and we aren't busy, I get bored and hungry and antsy and its hard to hold a conversation with someone without my mind going elsewhere. I told my doctor these things she tested me again, and said that with the 50mg my thyroid is right where it needs to be. She told me to start halfing my pills for a little while and see what happens. I started doing that today. I have also started a gym membership and am going to try and eat better. I jsut crave sweets all the time. Not only did diabetes ruin my life, now im dealing with this...its just really discouraging!
