Low Thyroxine Pcos
Borderline hypothyroid (TSH varies btw 2.7 to 4) n PCOS. Dont want to take Synthroid (thyroxine) coz of side effects, what else can I do to keep energy & mood up?
Obese. Supposed to take metformin for pcos & Synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroid. Had severe diarrhea, so stopped taking. Now can't lose any significant weight?
See your doctor: Metformin can cause diarrhea, and some people cannot take it, but most can if they work their way up slowly. Begin at just 500 mg/day, and then after a few days increase to 500 2x/day. The body usually gets used to it. All this requires careful management, and i recommend discussing this with your doctor. Are you on the right dose of synthroid (thyroxine)? ...Read more
TSH 3 & PCOS. Took metformin for 2 yrs then stopped. Now on Synthroid (thyroxine) 50mcg & Prozac 20mg. Still tired, fatigue. Any supplementation?

Hypothyroidism: You're OB-gyn was correct for prescribing thyroxine for your hypothyroidism. TSH of 23 is fairly high. It is possible that the dose will need to be cut down a bit. Was this increased from a prior dose or were you just diagnosed as hypothyroid and this is your starting dose. You're doc should also check your calcium levels as low calcium can cause these symptoms as well. ...Read more

I have pcos. I'm on 500mg metformin and 100mcg levothyroxine. Can missing doses of my meds cause me to miss my period?
Yes: You likely have to miss more than 1 or 2 pills to cause you to miss your period. Women with pcos often miss periods, though and these medications aren't meant or intended to regulate your periods. At 23, if you're not trying to conceive and if you miss periods, you should be on birth control to help prevent pre-cancer of the uterus. Women with pcos = higher estrogen. ...Read more
