I see you are from Ohio alilee818, what part are you from if I may ask? I am from Northwest Ohio, about 50 some miles south of Toledo. I also have hypothyroidism and have been on Synthroid for almost 10 years (.137mcg). Hopefully, once you start taking it you will feel better! I have been on phen for about 3 weeks now and have lost about 13 pounds! I have had a hard time losing any weight because of the thyroid problem and also insulin resistance (and also having two kids within the last three years!) The Synthroid should help you feel some better as long as they get you at the right dose, I still have moments of very low energy though, but the phen has really helped that! Good luck!
