Thyroxine Sodium Tablets Ip
24 Replies RSS
According to a medical test i had undergone recently, it was written that my T3 and T4 secretions were allright. But the secretion of TSH(Thyroid stimulating hormone) was less(my TSH was found to be 5.98 uIU/ml, wherease as written in the report, in adults it is found to be 0.27 to 4.2 uIU/ml). I am 16 years old. So, as prescribed by the doctor, each morning, i am taking one tablet of Thyroxine Sodium Tablets IP, whose each uncoated tablet contains-- Thyroxine Sodium IP equivalent to anhydrous Thyroxine Sodium 25mcg Synthetic thyroid Hormone. At present i do not take any other medicine or never in my life have i consumed any long term medicine as such.

levothyroxine and your period
1 Reply RSS
I have had a partial thyroidectomy. Was started on levothyroxine 50 mcg. Now up to 150mcg. I had a mirena put in and periods stopped before my thyroid issues started and did not have a period. Swapped to brand synthroid and they started back after about 3 or 4 months. A year later I swapped back to levothyroxine and they stopped again. My tsh was elevated and my doctor recommended I go to brand necessary synthroid and 4 months later my periods have started back. ## That can be a normal side effect of the medication changes, and your original thyroid issue, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, mood swings, and hair loss. Are you on any other medications?

swelling in legs and feet levothyroxine

I just started taking Levothyroxine 2 wks ago my legs and feet are swollen so bad by nite I can barley walk. They go down a little at nite but swell back. I am taking 25mcg and I am afraid to continue taking this med. Has any one else had this problem? ## Have you contacted your doctor? It sounds like you might be having a bad reaction to this medication and it may not be the right one for you, or may be too high of a dosage. Generally, the symptoms of a dosage being too high will start to manifest 6 days or so, after you start taking it and this type of fluid retention can be one of them and there is a chance that it could lead to congestive heart failure, if that's what's causing it and it isn't rectified. You should really contact your doctor immediately. ## I am on medic...

Levothyroxine side effects

I was recently diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. I have been taking levothyroxine for almost two weeks. For the last four or five days I have had a weird feeling. It is hard to explain. I don't really feel dizzy but I get a strange feeling in my head. I guess you would describe it as a head rush. Has anyone else had this feeling and will it go away as my body adjusts to the levothyroxine? ## yes i would get that every morning after i took my pills and drank coffee. I think its inmortant to eat a little over an hour after to avoid the dizziness. It does go away though. ## Levothyroxine Info and Side effects Click Here ## my pharmactist changed my thyroid pills because my insurance doesn't cover my other ones.

I don't feel so confused anymore. Now I know all of you are going through the same thing. My doctor put me on 50mcg of Levothyroxine about a month ago and I have gain 8 pounds! I get short-breathed and winded REALLY easily when working out. I used to go to the gym for 2 hours, now I can't make it longer than 30 minutes.

Sandoz Levothyroxine
3 Replies RSS
Recently filled a prescription for Levothyroxine 150 mcg and noticed a very fowl smell and ultimately a slightly different taste when taking it. One side of the pill is marked with "150" and the other side with "GG338." We questioned the pharmacist about this and they opened a new bottle that smelled the same to us, but she didn't smell anything so nothing was done. I know Levoxyl was discontinued for a while for this very problem. Is there any information out there about this Sandoz product? ## If you had a chance to read the FDA recall information, the odor it was recalled for was actually due to a problem with the absorbent canister that was packaged in the bottles, not the pills themselves. However, the odor was not found to cause any adverse health issues, or pr...

I have been on 50 mcg of synthroid for a few months as I didnt know I even had a thyroid issue but this month after my labs were drawn they raised it to 88 mcg, what ate some factors that could affect it in such a way to increase it so much? My husband and I are trying to conceivr but nothing else has changed, no new meds, enviorment, etc. Plz help"!! ## It's really just your body, it's normal for your thyroid hormone levels to fluctuate sometimes and for the med to need to be adjusted. There are times they may lower it, or they may raise it, that's why they do the regular blood tests to check. There is no set dosage that always works for everyone, it's just something that needs to be constantly monitored and changed, as needed. If you're trying to get pregnant, ...

Does anyone know for how long this medicine will be back ordered? I'm taking the generic & I feel like I was hit by a truck, having nightmares, anxiety, etc. ## Hello, Blake! How are you? I am very sorry about the problems you're experiencing. Pfizer has released an update stating that it will begin to ship to pharmacies by about March 3rd.

Is there anything else I can help with? ## My recent blood labs showed a lower T4 and higher cholesterol.
