Hypothyroid + weight gain

Doc, I have been detected with hypothyroid 2.5 years ago and since then I have been on medication. Earlier, I had started with Eltroxin 25mg, which has now reached to 150mg. I have put on almost 20kgs of excess weight. I am really struggling to reduce it and also, I always feel tired and depressed. Also, have a lots of mood swings. I try to keep a check on diet and also, follow some exercise, as much as I can, but thats not regular for sure. Past some days I feel that my menses are also becoming irregular. Please advice me what to do

Thyroid does not cause increase of 20kg weight. You need to focus more on diet and exercise for looking weight. What are your current thyroid profile values ?
