The medicine is given to correct thyroid problem & not to reduce weight, although as additional benefit it might reduce weight. For weight reduction you need to modify your lifestyle: Eat healthy & exercise daily. Regarding correction of thyroid problem, it usually takes 6-12 weeks for medicine to show effect.
Wish you good health.
