Hi doctor,

My usual weight is 58 kg. But, in spite of regular rigorous exercise in the past two months I am not able to lose even half a pound. It has lowered my stamina and I feel lethargic. Please let me know why is it so? I am Currently on Thyronorm 100 mcg for hypothyroidism and homeopathic medicines for low BP and anemia. I have also started on Lorazepam before five months. Please help.
