    I take the same dose of the same med and I haven’t gained any weight because of it. Its a very small dose so I wouldn’t worry too much. Good luck!

    Having a slow thyroid could cause you to gain wait, the medicine is being used to speed that up (if I’m understanding you correctly) so really it should help, but either way you could notice some change. With that low of a dose though, it shouldn’t effect it that much.

    Levoxyl will not make you gain a considerable amount of weight. An untreated thyroid condition can cause significant weight gain.

    You should get your blood tested in about 2 months after starting the medicine. Thyroid levels can change frequently and you may not notice any changes in how you feel right away.

    Also if you have a thyroid condition I would recommend seeing an endocrinologist (thyroid specialist) since most doctors are not fully aware of how to treat and monitor a thyroid condition properly.
