I was on meds during my subsequent pregnancy with my now 20 month old daughter. But, I never went back to work. I lost my insurance and therefore no more meds.
generic levothyroxin off insurance for 100 pills should cost less than $20. Not having insurance isn't a reason to not take required meds. Ask for your RX to be called in for 100 or 90 pills and ask the pharmacist if there is a discount in bulk. I used to buy mine off insurance even though I had prescription coverage because it was so much cheaper.
