    Things do get better. If you’re counts are within the normal range and
    you are still gaining weight and are often overwhelmingly fatigued try
    getting your doctor to give you a medication other than synthroid. Other
    medications contain the active hormone, T3, and may be more effective.
    If your doctor refuses to give anything but synthroid, shop around for a
    new doc. Good luck!
    I was on syntroid for over ten years and experienced rapid weight gains
    bonechilling cold, fatigue, hair loss, and memory loss and water
    retention. All of these symptoms were not alleviated with synthroid,
    but are with medications containing T3.
    Ten years of hell. I am still having problems, but most symptoms are
    better on Armour thyroid. Hope this helps.
