I am 46 year old 5’4 and I weigh 208 lbs. After having our child, I had gained over 100lbs. In 2010, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto and Hypothyroidism. My thyroid was controlled for awhile but this year my thyroid has been uncontrollable. I am taking Synthroid (brand) 137mg. Two weeks ago, I did my blood work and my T4 came high and my TSH at .053. My doctor now has me taking the same dose but for one day a week take half the pill. Then, I need to come back and see him in a month to check the levels.

My doctor just prescribed me Phentermine 15mg and Topiramate 25mg (half a pill twice daily). After reading all your post, it has made me feel that at least I have some hope. My question is when you do you take the Phentermine and Topiramate? Do you take it together with the Synthroid? Also, do you take it with food?

Thank you in advance and any help is much appreciated.
