Default Big thumbs down to xenadrine

BIG THUMBS DOWN TO XENADRINE. I have just been to the hospital to have my thyroid (or what's left of it) examined with ultrasound and been told that my thyroid is almost completely destroyed due to autoimmunization. This means the thyroid has made an immune response to its own tissue constituents effectively destroying it.
Why has my thyroid destroyed itself? Answer: I USED XENADRINE FOR ONLY 2 MONTHS AT THE TIME EVERY 3 YEARS. As little as this has been enough for my thyroid to go into autoimmunization as it has been 'thinking' it's operating at a far too efficient rate so better destroy some of the healthy tissue to turn 'turn down' this rate.
I NOW HAVE PRACTICALLY NO THYROID AND HAVE TO TAKE THYROXIN FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

1. It's not likely that the "suggested dose" of Xenadrine for 2 months every 3 years is the culprit of a permanent thyroid disorder.

2. You're making a lack of thyroid function out to be a bigger deal than it is. Levothyroxin in the generic is cheap (around $30 for 2 months worth), has zero side effects, and does for your body exactly what your thyroid did when it was functioning properly. It's a little pill, so even if you have a strong gag reflex it's no big deal. It's smaller than an unpopped popcorn kernel, and you just take one every day. If you forget a day, you probably won't even notice any problems. If you skip a few days you'll feel lethargic and possibly a little muscle-achey. Take a pill when you remember, and the next day you'll feel fine again.

Really - no need to scream your angst melodramatically. It's one of the more benign problems you could experience, as a result of taking a diet pill. Be glad it didn't damage your heart or brain function.
