Its not clear what you mean, in what way do you feel very bad when taking the medicine, when was the last time you retested your levels, if you are feeling well without medication then do a retest.

Welcome to health care magic forum,

as you are feeling well without medicine so don't take it and re-investigate.

Researches show that thyroid problems are directly related with mental and emotional factors.

Mostly when there is some disturbances at level of mental or emotional level like shock, grief, stress, tension, anxiety, disappointment etc. will affect to physical level at various way and mostly affect to metabolism, hormones and/or neurological level.

Homeopathic medicine is selected with consideration of physical complain with emotional and mental factor.

Hence, it is most curative in these type of chronic diseases.
