As per your narration and the drugs you take your complaint is hypothyroidism which causes this tiredness and weakness ,slowness etc and despite taking hormones if you are feeling tired, furthur investigation has to be carried out. You can consult an endocrinologist to investigate furthur. Homoeopathic approach is to find the cause of this hormonal imbalance and to treat it thus bringing back the altered immunity to normal after a consultation.

I hope you are taking medicine for hypothyroidism which should b checked and controlled.
You need to update on your height and weight for better guidance.
Due to excess weight and hypothyroidism you may feel all de above symptoms.
Once you will start reducing weight all your tiredness. Lethargic feelings will go away. You will start feeling more fresh and energetic.
You need to have a balanced healthy food in your daily routine
Avoid junk. Packet. Preserved. Oily food
Have more of complex carbohydrates. Fiber. Protein rich food
Drink adequate water
you require good 7 hrs sleep not more than that. Sometimes oversleep also leads to feel more sleepy and lethargic
Start doing exercise for minimum 20 to 30 min. Could b in any form like brisk walk. Dance.
