I have been taking .025mg of Levothyroxine for 6 weeks. During this time I have been having terrible mood swings. I also started taking the birth control pill Loestrin 24Fe one month before starting Levoth. Is this likely to be caused by the Levothyroxine? Is this something that I should be concerned about?

From personal experience--- it could actually be the birth control pill instead of the Levothyroxine. Don't ever stop this medicine without medical supervision though but please consult the doctor who gave you each of those and see what they say but my experience is it may be the b/c pill. Hope this helps some, marjorie zych
