Thank you for posting your query.

It is possible that your tiredness, fatigue and sleepiness are related to your skipping the thyroid pills.

However, if you do not get better despite taking the thyroid pills, then, you can get your haemoglobin, vitamin B12 and vitamin D levels checked up to exclude any deficiency.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
