May not be the right dose.  If it's not high enough u might feel tired.  The joint pain I doubt is related.

I go back next week to get checked but I looked up the joint pain and a lot of people had that side effect.So hopefully my dr. get things straight.

I'm on 88 and it seems like I need higher. Those symptoms you are having sound more like they are from the sluggish thyroid itself. I feel tired alot and can't seem to lose any weight :/

My only symptom (before, when I was still on 25mcg, hadn't yet went to 50mcg) was being really tired, when they upped my dosage I was much more awake.

Hi I  have been on Levi for 2 years and have not had any problems.
Just over the last 6 months I have had severe knee problems and aching muscle pain in my legs
If I don't take the pills the pain in my knees are 100 percent better.
So I think there is a problem with side affects with this pill.
I am 67 male and wad told that I would be on these for life.
