I'm hypothyroid. My previous primary care doctor diagnosed me, based on a 
test I guess. I had gained a lot of weight and was always tired but 
that to other factors (which were most likely part of the problem as well). 
never thought about my thyroid being the cause because, well, I never 
about my thyroid! My doctor told me that once I had been taking my 
(Levoxyl) for awhile I'd start to feel better but I never did. I started at 
then 75 and now I'm at 100mcg. I *do* feel better now but that's only 
some other issues were cleared up and I lost a lot of weight this past year.
I've been taking the Levoxyl for 6 or 7 years now.
