Hi Debbie,

I have been taking .15 for the past 15 years or so and I feel that I need more but my doctor says my range is in normal. I think I may be a person who would do better at the highest range of normal possible. I am going to tell my doctor to refer me to an endocrinologist and I am going to see if I can have my elthyroxine increased. I feel tired and lack the energy I had when I first started taking elthyroxine. I have gained weight and sometimes I wonder if I am depressed. When I went through the operation and the RAL I was 16 and I am 39 now. I had absolutely no knowledge about what was happening to me, but probably as much as some of the quacks I saw.
I read all the bulletins too and I realize I have to get medical help. The bulletins haave made me realize that people with this problem go through specific things, many of which I thought were due to other problems.
