What are the side effects of Levothyroxine if you stop taking it?
Answer Levothyroxine is a thyroid hormone replacement. If you do not take this med it mimics hypothyroidism - sluggishness, being tired all the time, weight gain. Trust me -you will feel much better if you take this med!!! Levothyroxine is given to hypothyroid patients to replace what is naturally missing. It is not a drug as such, but merely supplements what the body cannnot produce enough of. Stopping taking levothyroxine would indeed lead to you becoming hypothyroid again. This means you'll feel sluggish and tired, be constantly cold, have dry skin and put on weight. Again I'd advise not to stop taking it unless you want to experience these symptoms.
