Anyone suffering from side effects of levothyroxine?

Admin please forgive the breach of etiquette, but I didn't know how to reach you to ask permission. Of course, delete this post immediately if it conflicts with your rules.

I am a women's health journalist working on an assignment about thyroid dysfunction for a major women's magazine. I need to interview a woman with subclinical hypothyroidism who experienced negative side effects after taking levothyroxine. The article is about how difficult it is to diagnose and treat subclinical hypothyroidism. I have a patient for whom the drug did wonders. But my editor wants me to balance the piece by profiling someone for whom the drug created a new problem, didn't solve her issue, or led to other complications. If this is you, please consider emailing me at Thanks in advance!

Hi Catherine, If you are still doing this research I have had problems with Levothyroxine since I went on it 3 years ago even though my blood results are good. Regards, J Leek
