I have been taking 150 micro grams of Synthroid for over ten years now. I have lost my health insurance and stopped taking it almost 2months now. Anyone know what's in store for Me? I really don't like the fact that I have to take a pill a day for the rest of my life. I am tired more then usual skin dry and sometimes find it hard to think and concentrate leg cramps etc. But so far nothing I can't handle.
If you needed Synthroid for so long, once you stop taking it gradually you will experience more symptoms of hypothyroidism. With low thyroid hormone levels other hormone levels will also be affected.
Please see symptoms of hypothyroidism in the link below.
