Hi I'm a little nervous I stop my Synthriod 50 mcg was put on it for mild hypothyroid 6 weeks ago. dow my f3 and f4 and all the other testes were normal too. Sonogram shows on thyriod one little smaller then the other but my Dr put me on meds cause mt TSH level kept fluctuating from 1.3 to 6.6 & my last was 4.7. But for the last 2 weeks I was waking up with a soar troat
And was breaking in sweats, I stop them 3 day ago but for the last 2 day I wake up with my heart racing it goes away but it a little scary, and I've read so many things about stoping the meds that could scare anyone, but my sister told that she was put on the med and after 3 month she just stop taking them cause she didn't feel any different. I did notice more energy but
Also was feeling sleepy and taking naps during the day, dont know if all that energy worn me out, but that was not common for me. Just wonder has anyone stop thier med after 6 weeks, will be seeing my doctor on january 2 for a follow up. Ive never had sweats and the racing heart system start 2 day after stoping. PLEASE ADVICE THANK YOU

It is not safe to get off your thyroid medication on your own. The symptoms you are having, racing heart, etc. are dangerous. I would contact my endocrinologist as soon as possible explaining what you are doing and let him guide you. I would not wait until January to talk to a doctor concerning this!

Good luck!

Take control of your health. If a drug is making you feel bad might be a good idea not to take it. You were put on the drug because it was your doctors opinion you need it. Doctors get it wrong all the time. Drugs are not good for the body and the side effects tell you that. Here is an article published by Harvard Medical School which says drugs are not necessary for borderline underactive thyroid. If you are having problems with your thyroid could be you are deficient in the raw materials necessary for a healthy thyroid. Most common deficiencies are iodine or selenium. Check out your diet and start eating things which promote good health and your problems may go away. Get on the internet and google information for a healthy thyroid and make up your own mine as to what you need.
