    Overmedicated from Nature Throid
    An_265962 posted:
    Hello! I was diagnosed with Hashimotos hypothyroidism about 3 yrs ago. I was on Synthroid for awhile and recently switched to Nature Throid. My recent labs showed my TSH at 6 so my dr upped my dosage. Ever since then I have been having extreme flu like symptoms that come and go. I have been experiencing extreme nausea, dizziness, racing heart, loss of appetite, sweating/chills, fast digestion, muscle weakness, and occasional vomiting. I have also lost almost 10 lbs. I feel like maybe I am being over medicated but wondering if anyone else has experience anything like this? Thanks for your help!
