I was diognosed with Hashimoto Hypothyroid 4 yrs ago. I am 56 never had weight issues. When diagnosed I weighed 130. Once starting Levothyroxine meds I continued gaining weight and changed to Armor 6 months ago but the weight has continued. I have gained at 45-50 pounds. The most I ever weighed was during pregnancy and that was 155. I wish I never started these thyroid meds! My doctor suggest I try Qysimia in may 2014 but after 2 days feeling anxious and not sleeping she prescribed Belviq, which I still haven't taken it because of some of the hallucinogenic type side affects. I just thought I could tackle this with diet and exercise but hypothyroid I guess makes it difficult! Has anyone experienced any of thes hallucinogenic type side affects?
I have Hashimotos I'm on Sythroid 112 mcg daily, I'm 37 year old female and I started my Belviq yesterday the 4th of March. I have felt awful since, I have felt shaky all day, sick to my stomach, bad head ache, shoulder and neck ache( worse then normal for me anyway),and have felt really tense, heart rate seemed fine though. I will be so thankful when it completely wears off. I only took one dose,10mg, will NOT take another. I couldn't imagine feeling the way I've felt all day,all the time.Nope! I just feel like I had just fell off my rocker. It's definitely not for me. Good luck! BTW: yes all my blood work is all up to day on my thyroid.2 weeks ago. I go to a specialist for my Hashimoto and my regular family doctor.
I haven't experienced any hallucinations. I too have thyroids and gained 25 pds and decided to take Belviq. I've lost 6-7 pounds so far and I realy can't tell. People with thyroids have a very difficult time trying to lose weight such as me. And to top it off I run 3 miles a day and do 30 min cardio exercises. Belviq is kinda helping me but not as fast as people who don't suffer from thyroids. Only side affects for me is cotton mouth,and it makes you tired but no everyday
