I am responding to the comment about using synthroid. Synthroid is for people with hypothyroidism. It is used to help restore normal hormones produced by the thyroid. Taking it with a well functioning thyroid can be dangerous. It can produce symptoms that mimic hyperthyroidism - nervousness, weight loss, increased heart rate, possible arrythmias (abnormal heart rhythm), and in severe situations death - a thyroid crisis or storm. Patients taking synthroid for hypothyroidism must have blood levels checked periodically and their dose adjusted. It is not a pill for weight loss. As a nurse, I would definately question anyone who tries to prescribe it to you without providing you with clinical evidence it can be used in the manner he/she is suggesting.
