    Thyroxine to lose weight - thyroxine side effects??

    One of my friends is desperate to lose weight hence she has bought thyroxine online for that. I am a little bit concerned about for her. Are there are ay potential side effects if one is euthyroid and takes thyroid to lose weight?

    Hope you folks are alright otherwise

    I know @Susan some people at the gym take thyroxine or even T3 to increase muscle size. To be honest formula seems to be the simple one. More thyroid hormones, increased metabolism hence weight loss or weight gain if you increase calorie.intake at the sametime. Theoretically that should work but reality its quite different. Not everyone gets their hormonal system back to normal once they start playing and feeding the body hormones from external source. Not sure if I make sense but I wouldnt advise taking it for weight loss.
