Thyroid Overview

The thyroid, or thyroid gland, is an endocrine gland in the neck consisting of two connected lobes. The lower two thirds of the lobes are connected by a thin band of tissue called the thyroid isthmus. The thyroid is located at the front of the neck, below the Adam's apple. Microscopically, the functional unit of the thyroid gland is the spherical thyroid follicle, lined with follicular cells (thyrocytes), and occasional parafollicular cells that surround a lumen containing colloid. The thyroi...

Does levothyroxine cause acne

I have been taking 25mcg for about 6 weeks and feel much better, no weight loss, but no gain. I have developed acne on my chin and around the right side of my mouth...is this a side effect? Anyone else had this happen? ## ive been taking a 25mcg for a week now and am worried that i will develop acne. do many people get this ? ## I have been taking the same dosage as you for about 2 months and have had really bad breakouts EVERYWHERE that I didn't used to get. I now get them on my back, face, shoulders and neck. It's pretty gross and I've never had this problem before but I think it does have something to do with Levothyroxine. ## Hi, I am on thyroxine 4 weeks now and also have gotten acne on my chin and around the mouth. I am now 47 and have not had this problem since I was ...

Thyroid Armour 1GR (60mg) pills

I am 70 yrs old and just started this pill. The Dr. said I'd lose weight & wouldn't get hot flashes anymore. Well, so far I took 2 pills one a day, and I have tiny bumps that itch like hell and a red rash, it's on one leg & swollen. Has anyone else ever had this from these pills?? He wants me to keep taking them but I don't know. ## How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? An itchy rash could be the sign of an allergic reaction, which means this might not be a good medication for you to take. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. Are you on any other medications? ## I'm sorry, I'm just now seeing this message. I figured Armour was giving me the rash, it FINALLY went away. I'm stil...

White small Round Pill M L on one side blank on other side

Small cirlcle pill but thick. Easy to scrape coding off but no numbers only label ML i found it in my older sisters room under the rug what is it? ## I have found three pills as you described; small, white, round with ML on one side & blank on the other side. I have no idea what they are. If any one does know, please tell me. I have a few friends that take a variety of things if they can & I worry that one time they are going to get something very harmful. ## Has any one yet ID'd these pills? Small white round pill curved front and back and thick. Letters ML on front side, smooth on back side. I took to the pharmacy and pharmacist looked and looked and said it was not in database. I found these in my 88 year old moms weekly pill box which I prepare for her. I did not put the...

Synthroid menstrual changes side effect

Hi, ever since I started taking synthroid my cycle got much longer and reproductive hormones tests did not come great (low FSH, low LH, high oestradiol, high prolactin). TSH and T4 is ok though so my doctor is happy with dose (and I'm waiting for referral to endo). I can't find anywhere if it's a side effect that goes away by itself as body adjusts or is there something really wrong. Feeling anxious but my wait to see endo could be a while. Anyone knows anything? They only say that hair falling out is a temporary thing (luckily don't have that!) But nothing about other side effects... ## Yes, menstrual, and hormonal, irregularities are a reported side effect of Synthroid, along with nausea, diarrhea, muscle weakness, and insomnia. So, things should improve, once your bod...

Round White Pill Marked Tc One Side C The Other

Please identify small white round pill marked TC on one side and C on the other. Thank you ## Hello, I believe I have identified your pill as Levothyroxine sodium (100 mcg). From what I can gather, this specific pill is manufactured in the UK... Levothyroxine is typically used to treat hypothyroidism. It may also be used to treat goiter via its ability to lower thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), a hormone that is considered goiter-inducing. Adverse effects: Dosing must be carefully controlled to achieve TSH levels within the normal reference range. Long-term suppression of TSH values below normal values will frequently cause cardiac side-effects and contribute to decreases in bone mineral density (high TSH levels are also well known to contribute to osteoporosis). Patients prescribed to...

Propylthiouracil PTU

How long should I use PTU have been taking this medication for (1) year with my tsh checked by my dr. every (3) months. I went off of ptu about 6 months ago and ended up in the hospital for atrial fibulation. I do not have health insurance and need to know if I should cut back on the medicine I take 2 tabs 2x's a day 50 mg. of propylthiouracl. I have hyperthyrodism. ## Only your doctor can advise you on whether or not it is safe for you to change the dosage of your medication. No one online can really answer that, since your full medical history, and TSH levels are unknown. Typical side effects of this medication may include nausea, dizziness, hair loss, weight changes, and skin rash. You may require a medication like this for the rest of your life, it depends on the specific detail...

levothyroxin tab

I am allergic to the dye in the 112mcg Synthroid tablets. Does anyone know of a 112mcg that is white??? Levothyroxine ? I am now taking 2 pills on 5 days and 3 pills on 2 days. 50mcg each. ## I am allergic to the dye as well, and should be on 112 mcg. too. I like your idea of 2 pills (white..50 mcg.) for 5 days, and 3 pills for 2 days. So glad you posted your idea. Splitting the pills just doesn't work. If any Manufactures are reading this, please refrain from putting dyes in meds!!! Serious side effects can result, and the dyes make it difficult for some of us to take the proper dosage amounts that are prescribed. ## Your pharmacy should be able to provide you with a dye free option, though they may have to order a supply in for you, so it is best to make sure to alert them to the ...

Armor 60 Mg Vs Synthroid 0 112 Mug

I have been on synthroid for approx 11 years. Some of my symptoms never went away. Cold hands &feet, losing (it does grow back, but I have a million baby hairs on my head) hair, etc. I read somewhere that changing from a strictly T4 (Synthroid) to a T3T4 (Armour) thyroid medicine would help. My doctor gave me the new medicine Armour 1 GR (60mg). I was on synthroid 0.112MG). Did my doc give me too high a dose of the new amrour medicine? I want my symptoms to go away but I don't want to overdose. Help! ## I was on Synthroid 0.112mg and the Dr. put me on Armour Thyroid 3GR. which is 180mg. I would say that your dose is closer to the equivelant of Synthroid then mine. I don't know what my last TSH, T4 levels were so I hope thats why he gave me such a high dose... All I know is I...
