I have hypothyroidism. My doctor suggested me to take 50 mcg of Thyronorm daily early in the morning.He also gave me Xenical 120 mg to be taken after 15 days of taking Thyronorm 2 times a day followed by heavy meal. My TSH Level is 7.8 and T3 and T4 are normal. I have gained around 10 kg of weight. Just wanted to confirm if i am taking the right medicine. Its been only a week i am taking the medicine and how soon i can expect the results and loose my weight? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Thyronorm is the medication usually used for hypothyroidism when confirmed by lab results and physical examination. Duration of results may vary from individual to individual depending on the severity of problem. Anyhow, only one week is a very short time to expect physical results. Kindly discuss this with your doctor. However, today’s research indicates that a move toward individualizing the dosing of prescription agents is warranted and it can happen only after physical consultation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
