First thing first that you have to make sure the Synthroid dose is enough. Your doctor can check TSH level for confirmation. Synthroid is the right drug for replacement therapy. For some reason we do not know, some patients have to take thyroid extract in order to achieve euthyroid (normal thyroid function) status. Remember to take Synthroid with an empty stomach first thing in the morning.
