I am a 51 years old woman and I have trouble losing weight. I have more cellulite and constantly get tired. I have a busy, hectic work life, but I do try to exercise. I also have a lot of water retention and lots of bloating. I have flatulence with stomach swelling. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, but the medicine Synthroid 80 mg does not help. I eat a balanced meal but do not sleep enough (very light sleeper). Water retention worsens close to periods but is still present all the time. Currently, I am taking Synthroid 75 mg, Cytimel 5 mcg, Fluoxetine 10 mg, and Vyvanse 10 mg.
First, the thyroid condition you have may cause the symptoms. Second, water retention and the symptoms can be a part of taking the medication Fluoxetine. Therefore, I recommend stopping the medicine. Abdominal distension, if associated with nausea and related to food intake, may suggest severe gastritis.
