I was told that once you start taking synthroid, you can never stop. Is this true? Also, told that you will gain weight if you quit.
Synthyroid is a synthetic hormone used to regulate the normal function of the thyroid gland. It affects many aspects of your organs therefor it should be weined off under the direction of a doctor. Everyone one is different if your thyroid is overstimulated you can loose weight and going off the medication can cause you to gain weight back. This information is only from my experience and how it was explained to me. I hope it helps Maybe a pharmacist could explain it where as it makes more sense andway I hope this helps somewhat
