Hello. I'm back again.

I'm currently taking 100 mg of Levothyroxine. I've been taking it since April so nearly 4 months. I feel a little better but I still don't feel normal. I've tried taking 150 mg of it but nothing happened.

I'm wondering if I should ask my doctor about taking Liothyronine also or taking Armour? Or am I not taking enough mgs? I'm still tired, I've gained 3 more pounds, still a little forgetful, & still feeling a little grumpy.

I eat all the right things for my thyroid & take my medicine everyday.

My doctor said she wants my levels at 5 but I was at an 8 when she last checked (in April). I'm wondering should I be at a 2 instead?

As I said in my last post, I've been trying for about 10 months now to lose weight & now I've gained so much weight back (with diet & exercise!!) that I've only lost 6 lbs (last time I said I'd lost about 14 lbs). It's so frustrating. I'm 21 years old & I feel like I'm 40.
