My pdoc gave me Provigil as an alternative to the thyroid med. He said he wasn't up on the research enough to Rx thyroid for me. It's odd because he gave me the Cytomel 25 mcg in the first place. But he seemed enthusiastic about Provigil.
I guess I'll try it, although it seems like it doesn't address the whole spectrum of things that thyroid does. But he did say it's not supposed to cause bone loss and heart trouble, but then I wonder how much long-term safety data there is on it, since it's fairly new.
