About Me: Female, 68, Wyoming, MI, member since Apr 2013
10 years ago I was diagnosed with hyperthyroid and given Tapazole, which caused me to gain 30 pounds. When I went off the drug, I lost the weight but with great effort on my part, and my thyroid normalized for a year and then became hypothyroid - now controlled by levo
[More]thyroxine. I went on to lose another 20 pounds (with effort) and was very happy. After 6 months on Symbicort I have gained the 20 pounds back and am NOT happy. I expect it will take great effort on my part AGAIN to lose that weight.
