I'm sure this is a pretty common problem but I'd like to hear others stories. Last Thursday (the 21st) I started on my Levothyroxine and have since gained 8 pounds in 6 days! Now I know it can take time for the body to adjust but to gain a pound or 2 everyday is not something I am willing to be patient with. I lost 90 pounds a year ago and am not about to put it back on. I am wondering if my dosage is too low. I'm only on 88 mg and when I read blogs and boards people are taking like 250 mg. Should I beg and plead with my dr for help ASAP or what if I took 2 pills instead of 1???
