Hi, i had a total thyroidectomy in 2003 and been given Eltroxin 0.1mg (twice daily), 2006 the doctot said my thyroid started growing again and up my dosis to 3 a day. The last 7 months i havent taken my pills for several reasons ( financial mostly).
My question is what is the long term effect of not taken any medication for my thyroid?

I am not a doctor but I know that your body will retain water, you will be very tired and sleepy and even moody and that it is not good for your hear at well - please go to a clinic close to you where you can get the medication for FREE!

I can not without my medication for two days without all of the above mentioned happens to me - please do not play with your health!
