If you're not taking Synthroid, why did you feel the need to post that?Quote:

If your doctor has you on some generic template treatment that works for most people, it's time to find a doctor that will treat you specifically, not some textbook general treatment that works well for 90% of patients.
The bottom line is, you're afflicted with the condition (or perhaps you're not, since you don't seem to think so), so you've got much more of an interest in treating it. The Doctor has many other patients, but you're number one on your list of patients, so take matters into your own hands, and bring all the information you can find to him and discuss what direction YOU want to go with your treatment.
