Hello, I've very recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and am still experiencing a fair few symptoms whilst we figure out the correct med dosage. I also suspect I have undiagnosed ADHD (my sister has been diagnosed with it & the more research I do on it, the more it explains how olive my life/view the world). I am finding it difficult to keep on top of everything, especially as I also have 2 young children. Hoping the thyroid medication will help me feel a bit more like my old self so I can get on with life a bit.

      Hi! I have ADHD and hypothyroidism:) I find that if I take my levothyroxine first thing in the morning it's best. I have never forgotten yet! Hope it's gotten a bit more balanced out by now, how are you feeling?

      I have been dealing with hypothyroidism for 21 years, the medication takes a long time to work. You just have to be vigilant in your care, read up on it and make sure they are requesting all the correct blood work.
