  1. I wasn't overweight much until put on synthroid for hypothyroidism. Gained a lb a day. Was heavy as I was with my son in pregnancy. I said no way! I have multiple sclerosis. High cholesterol, ptsd, depression, low blood pressure, and after many hours of searching, realized thyroid pill was problem! Now waiting on new meds aemour thyroid.
    I only have 1 good thing had to shop for fat clothes !

    1. Hi . How frustrating. If anything, you should be losing weight on medication for a hypoactive thyroid. I hope the new medication is effective and that you are able to safely drop the extra weight. Gentle hugs. - Lori (Team Member)
