Dear Louiza
Do you mean that you are using Eltroxin to lose weight without having an underactive thyroid problem? If this is the case then you should under no circumstances take Eltroxin, BUT if you do suffer from an underactive thyroid and the doctor has prescribed Eltroxin, then you will not harm your heart if you take it as prescribed and this thyroid hormone replacement should help with weightloss.
