Question from Molly N.:

I have smoked for 25 years and have tried to quit several times & failed. I've tried patches, Wellbutrin, gum and cold turkey; I always end up going and buying a pack of smokes anyway. What can I do? I've got to quit, it's affecting my health above all and I just can't afford it anymore. I'd appreciate any advice from someone who has successfully quit. Thanks!

Question from Camilla Grant: Anyone ever taken Levothyroxine for low thyroid?

Did you experience any side effects? Do you have to keep taking it for the rest of your life?,
I'm just wondering because I was just prescribed Levothyroxine 25 mcg and am supposed to take it for 2 months and then go back to the doctor. I ordered synthroid on site

Yes, I take Levothyroxine every day for my under-active thyroid. The only side effects you will notice is that you will feel very awake and hungry for breakfast after you take it in the morning, which is how you SHOULD feel in the morning! :),
Under-active thyroid does crazy things, like make you feel less hungry, super tired, your periods could be off if you are female, your nails don't grow, your hair could thin out.. etc etc etc.. after a while of taking the levothyroxine you will notice that you will start to feel much more like your normal self. ,
Since your thyroid does not heal itself, you will have to take some sort of hormone therapy like levothyroxine for the rest of your life. Your doctor is going to monitor you every 6 weeks or so until your TSH and Free T3 and T4 levels even out to where they should be. She may adjust your medicine dosage during this period as well. Its annoying, but minor. 🙂 ,
After your levels even out – this will be after 6 months to a year or maybe even sooner if you're lucky – then you will only have to be tested every 6 months to once a year. I go every 9 months or so for a blood test and a quick 5 minute check up for meds. ,
I have never had any major side effects from taking this medication. The first day or so I noticed I had a slight headache, but that's all. I notice if I miss a dose I am more tired than usual, but this is normal for this medication since low thyroid makes you feel tired. ,
Your doctor will most likely tell you to take this medication first thing in the morning a half hour before you eat something. This is because this medication is easily absorbed by the things you eat and may pass right through without being absorbed into the blood. They also will tell you to stay away from taking any sort of antacid like tums or rolaids for the first hour after you take it for the same reason. :),
This medicine is not scary at all – and will make you feel much better in the long run!! Good luck!! :).
