thyroid disorders- medication even when no symptoms.why?
Post a Reply
My Tsh level during the last two years oscillated between 1.6 to 3.6 mc IU/ml in case of mine and 1.4 to 3.6 mc IU/ml oscillated in case of my wife. Our T3 and T4 are normal .We both are diabetic and is under control.Has mild bp.I have been taking 75 mcg thyronorm and my wife is taking 50 mcg of thyronorm. I am 75 year old and my wife is 66 year old .My question is even when the values are below normal (5.5 mcIU/ml) and even when there are no symptoms right from 2011 (first onset of the test) do we have to take this medicine? WE have undergone the test asymptomatic. But our physician has prescribed the medicine as the TSH level is nearer to 5.5 mc IU/ml and said we both have hypothyroism. But not even one symptom as enumergted. KIndly advise

tramazac side effects
Post a Reply
I have been taking tramazac co 37.5 mg since June 2016. I was given them initially for a hernia op. I continued taking them and in February 2017 I had a back op and was prescribed them again. I was taking 2 in the mornings and 2 in the afternoons and tramazac SR 200 at night. Now I am trying to get off the tramazac co 37.5 mg during the day. I have cut them down to 1 per day. Since cutting down on the 37.5 mg per day I am feeling extremely and abnormally fatigued especially round about the time I was taking 2 per day in the afternoons. I have been taking 1 per day now for a week and I want to continue with 1 per day until I am completely weaned off of them, but how do I overcome the extreme fatigue? Is this a withdrawal symptom I have to go through and if so for how much longer is what I w

Stopping Levothyroxine
123 Replies RSS
I have been taking Levothyroxine .88mg for the past two years. I just left town on a three week vacation and realized I left this prescription at home. Should I be concerned? ## If you suddenly stop taking Levothyroxine, your body can go through withdrawal. "Levothyroxine withdrawal may cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, fatigue, depression and sensitivity to cold because your body does not have enough thyroid hormone so your body processes slow down. Patients with thyroid cancer may suffer acute hypothyroidism because of levothyroxine withdrawal." Referenced from: livestrong.com/article/levothyroxine-withdrawal Since you've been taking this medication for so long, I would consider contacting your doctor about this if you have be...

Drug allergy skin rash

I have been suffering from a drug allergy reaction for 5 months. This has been confirmed by skin biopsies. I have discontinued all my meds except Synthroid and I am still breaking out with skin rashes. I was switched to the dye free .5 tablet - I take 2 1/2 tablets . I want to discontinue the Synthroid for a few months to test if I am allergic to it. My doctor says no, do not discontinue and he will not switch me to a natural thyroid hormone. He does not want to believe that I can be allergic to this med. I called several other doctors and they said they do not prescribe natural thyroid hormone. What can I do? I need to know if I am allergic to this. Can I stop it for a while? What else can I take that is not Levothyroxine? Please help. ## The only sure way to know if synthroid is causi...

Synthroid (Levothyroxine)
17 Replies RSS
I'm taking 137 mgs right now but when my thyroid was down the Dr. gave me a different mg level, but I can't remember if this is what it was, but it sure gave me energy and I lost weight, but then he changed it and said that I'm where I should be and if I continued it I would get osteoarthritis as the dr said that I'm right on the borderline. I wish I could remember the mgs, because I felt so good and didn't have any problems on that mg level and I ask him if I could go back on it and he said no. Thank You Linda ## Well, there is, of course, no way for us to know for sure, what that dosage was, but I am betting you just hit a dosage that worked better for you than your current one. Whether it was a higher or lower dosage, our bodies do sometimes do better with a certa...

No thyroid and only 50 mcg of levothyroxine and weight gain
8 Replies RSS
I have had a total thyroidectomy in January. After several months and testing I have gone from 100mcg down to 50mcg. I am told that means that there has to be some thyroid tissue remaining. I have gained weight almost 10 pounds, watch what I eat and am on the treadmill 45 minutes a day 7 days a week. I have hot flashes and night sweats multiple times a day. What am I to do not only for the side effects but also the weight gain. HELP!! ## Has your doctor provided you with any advice? Unfortunately, with a thyroid problem and taking Levothyroxine, you may never be able to completely escape the side effects and weight issues. I remember my mother was never happy with them, but she never did find any other solution. ## I was taking Levothyroxine 75mcg for a few years. I recently started syn...

Levoxyl availability
25 Replies RSS
Has Levoxyl been taken off the market again?? In November, 2016 I am being told by the pharmacy that I use (Walgreens) that Levoxyl has been taken off the market again because of quality problems, but I am not finding any information about such a recall on the internet. ## I called Pfizer, and Levoxyl 200mcg has indeed been taken off the market again. No estimate as to when it will be available. ## Has anyone explored other viable alternatives to Levoxyl in the meantime? From what I understand, there's always Synthroid or generic Levothyroxine which are commonly prescribed. Is Levoxyl really much different? If so, in what way, because it seems to be the same drug with a different name (aside from fillers)... I've also heard about various thyroid products such as 'ArmourThyro...

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.

Synthroid and Levothyroxine tablets may be just SUGAR!
Post a Reply
I took levothyroxine tablets for over 2 years then stopped. Why did I stop? Because they did absolutely nothing for me -- I kept gaining weight and continued to have all the same symptoms I had prior to taking them. BUT, the most important reason I stopped taking them was because I chewed a tablet (out of mere curiosity) and it tasted just like SUGAR! Oh so sweet. Hmmm...so why do they make a tablet taste like sugar when the instructions are to swallow it whole and NOT suck or chew it? (because they don't want you to discover it tastes like sugar). I believe that Levothyroxine and Synthroid (& most likely all other medication like these) are just SUGAR and that we are all being greatly DECEIVED. I recently went to my GP and she urged me to go back on Levothyroxine for my underactiv

Insurance Covers Medication But Forced to Pay Cash?
7 Replies RSS
Yesterday, I had an appointment with a brand new doctor that is in another state. He wrote me a prescription for a month supply of my medication and after stopping at and calling approximately 35 different pharmacies attempting to get the medication filled, I was given the name of a pharmacy by a very kind gentleman that had experienced the same problem. The medication I take is unfortunately very hard to get a prescription filled for if your doctor is not within your state and I live basically on the border of two other states, MD and PA. I called the pharmacy I was given the name of and indeed they did agree to fill the prescription. I inquired about acceptance of my insurance before going to the pharmacy and they stated that yes they did accept insurance and they would run the medica...

What Does Mcg Mean
6 Replies RSS
Ihave a newscript for levothroxine 50 MCG - things usually say MG ## Hi Linn, I definitely hear you on this one. Prescription drugs can be more confusing than algebra at times. Lol The difference of mcg vs mg is the measurement of each. MCG is the abbreviation of micrograms. MG is the abbreviation of milligram. You would need 1000 micrograms to make up 1 milligram. For your own reference: 50 mcg = 0.050 mg Learn More: Levothyroxine Details I hope this helps! :) ## Thank you. That clears up a lot. You are right, it is as bad as algebra which I also did not excel in. ## What is the difference between b12 5000mcg and b12 1000 mcg. I have been taking b12 1000mcg. And the bottle is empty so is it okay if I take b12 5000mcg ## Can you take too much B-12 ? Iam taking 1000 meg per day and get b...
