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?

In brief: 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. Your doc probably thinks its enough because your TSH is ok. Check free t3 (liothyronine)- i like my patients to be in upper half of normal range. See http://abt.Cm/1ntydpv ; http://bit.Ly/1ccxy0r ; http://bit.Ly/1cjnybx ; http://bit.Ly/15k26u8.
