  • I dont feel any different, only my blood results shows its impact

  • Having to take it early, before coffee or breakfast, is inconvenient, but totally worth it when you get your energy back. Also, I found that it didn't work nearly as well for me till I started regulating my blood sugar through better diet choices. I don't feel hypo any more!

    Hypothyroidism
  • I had to take the generic form of the medication in order to show how it did not work for me. I felt horrible on this medication, lethargic, depressed, it was a challenge. Just didn't work for me. I am one of the few who needs brand name.

  • The generic version of this medicine did not work at all, I switched to the brand name and it works better for me. I also started taking mine at night and have found the absorption and effectiveness increased significantly.

  • The generic worked fine for me for probably 8 years but the last 2 have been awful -- terrible weight gain, depression, constipation. Blood work shows it's working just right but clearly something is wrong.

  • If you are taking it while pregnant get tested monthly, even in the last stages of pregnancy, and make sure all results are sent to your specialist.

  • My asymptomatic Hashimoto's (hypothyroidism) was diagnosed while troubleshooting fertility problems. I got pregnant immediately after I started taking levothyroxine.
