Need more info: Hi. Is your thyroid function NORMAL on these meds (most likely l-thyroxine if you're hypo or methimazole if you're hyper)? If your thyroid function is not yet normal, you could have a variety of symptoms, and "grumpy" might be one of yours. If your thyroid function is normal, then either you have a different problem, or you just need to work on being a nicer person and less grumpy. Good luck!
