I had Radioactive Iodine (RAI) 10 months ago for hyperactive thyroid. I'm one of those "lucky" people who actually gained weight being hyper. After RAI my thyroid levels went really low REALLY fast. After being put on Synthroid in October, I'm leaning toward hyper again. With a strict diet, I've lost a "whopping" one pound in 6 month. Today, my medical doctor prescribed Contrave. Nothing else has worked, even Adipex. I'm only 5'2" and slightly over 200 pounds. Help!
