Hi! So I changed location and in the process of lookin for a new doc I ran out of my Levo. I take 50mcg a day. My appointment is not until a week from now. So I will be with no medicine for a week but I am so worried because they say to never discontinue it. When I was put in it, my thyroid level was on the low end of the normal range. I don't think is my thyroid that creates the issue but a 3-4mm pituitary tumor which was found nearly 4 years ago after the birth of my son. However, I've not had any issues or symptoms taking Levo. It has worked just fine. Now I'm am worried reading about all that can happen when you are off it! Can you please helping me with more info and options what to do!

Hello, Tillie! How are you? Have you gotten back on our medication, yet?

Being off of it for a week won't really endanger you, but you may start to experience the original symptoms, again. As listed by the FDA, they may include weakness, tiredness, weight changes and headache.

Has anyone else been in such a situation and, if so, what happened?
