I have been on Levothyroxine for 28 years, now on 100mg a day. I used to take it in the morning but switched to night, don't know why! Anyway what I would like to know does the time you take it affect your weight?

From the information I've read no, the time of day it's taken shouldn't have an effect on your weight, but it is usually taken in the morning, rather than at night.

Have you talked to your doctor about it?

i have been taking thyroxine for 8 years. Used to be on 125mcg but have been reduced to 75 in last year. Blood test says its enough, so why has my weight shot up to 12 and a half stones? I have never been this big and try to eat healthy. Please help.....
