I was diagnose with hypo 3yrs. Started taking levothyroxine 2yrs. ago and finally seeing and endo like Feb. 2012. First she told me to stop taking the whole pill which was 25mg and to take only half. after six weeks I was diagnose with Hashimoto's disease then she told me to take the whole pill again. 8 weeks later now she tells me to only take it 6 days out of the week except for Sundays. Its been 3yrs. and I still don't feel any better and it seem like I'm just getting worst. I used to weight 105 lbs. when down to 85 lbs. I'm 4' 11. It has been 2 weeks since I stop taking levothyroxine on Sundays. Should I just look for another endocrinologist? any suggestions would be great! Thanks!!!

Has she been doing blood tests to check your thyroid hormone levels on a regular basis?

That's what your dosing should be based on, so if she isn't doing that, then yes, I'd suggest seeing a different doctor.

Verwon, yes, she's does blood work every 6 to 8 weeks. One thing that I don't understand is that I've been on this medication for two yrs. and I'm not getting any better, so why would she let me take the same doses? I thought she was suppose to increase the doses. Thanks!!!
