Anyone else on Synthroid 125 mcg & not seeing results?

From: sueb813 - 4 years 35 weeks ago

I have been taking Synthroid for almost 7 years now and over the years the dosage has changed until my dr. got me on the right one. I started out with 25 mcg (used to go to my primary care, now go to an endocrinologist) and was adjusted till my levels "leveled off". when i first started, I lost 30 lbs in 8 months! Now for the past year I have been at 125 mcg and can't seem to drop the weight... ugh!! It was so easy before and although I don't exercise regularly, I am very active. And it used to suppress my appetite - not anymore. I would think that with a higher dosage it would come off. I have to confess, though, that 2 1/2 years ago, I lost my job and didn't have insurance so I didn't go to my dr and wasn't taking my med. ( from sept 2010 - may 2011) .. i know, BAD!!!, but have been back on it and thought by now i'd be where i was when i first started taking it. I have lost NO weight! Any ideas? Thanks!
