I just responded on your other thread about the amoxycillin vs ampicllin.

What are your wife's current thyroid hormone levels?  Please post whatever test results she has, and be sure to include reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and have to come from her own lab report.

The weight issue sounds like her eltroxin dose needs to be increased, but we can't really tell without seeing her current blood work.
