I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's about 18 months ago, and I have been on levothyroxine since. In the past 6 weeks, my doctor lowered my dosage. I had asked him to check my thyroid levels because my hair was falling out again, and he said that the dosage needed to be lowered some. Since then my hair has still been falling out, and I have gained 5 pounds in the past month. I have not changed my eating habits, so I am considering not taking the medication. My energy levels have been so low. I'm sleeping 10 hours each night, and just so exhausted. So, I was wondering have any of you chose to not taken the medication, and, if so, what have you noticed?
