I'm on levothyroxine 50mcg working out strict eating regime & not losing a lb. Is it safe to take a thyroid supplement weight loss pill?

What pill?: I'm not sure what type of pill you mean- one that claims to stimulate the thyroid? That's ok but you prob. Need more levothyroxine ;/or to add t3 (liothyronine). 50 mcg is a small dose.
