Please restart: Your dose suggests that you have mild to moderate low thyroid. Without your medication you could expect weight gain, hair loss, constipation, depression, feeling cold, and feeling lethargic. In cases of severely low thyroid, coma and heart damage can occur. This is not you now, but please restart your medication.
