Thyroid Overview

The thyroid, or thyroid gland, is an endocrine gland in vertebrates. In humans it is in the neck and consists 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 lu...

Methimazole side effects

I have taken Methimazole 10mg 4 tablets a day. I started it in March and at the end of April I looked as if I had the chicken pox. It was a terrible reaction that was possible sulfate poisoning? ## From what I have gathered a rare allergic reaction to taking this medication is difficulty breathing, rash that may cause itching, swelling, and dizziness. Consult your physician right away. More details: Medline Plus

Tirosint is the best!

Was on Levothyrosin,synthroid, and Armor thyroid meds over the past 7 years. The experience that I had with each one goes as follows. Levothyrosin made me feel like crap! I was tired,moody,sad,and questioned my sanity while I was on it. Weight gain! Synthroid made my skin,hair dry and brittle! It made me feel very irritated about little things. Weight fluctuation! Next, Armor I liked because I felt great! It helped me get my skin and hair back on a healthy course. Weight loss 20lbs! However, finding a doctor to write a prescription for it became too difficult when I relocated. Every doctor I asked said it may be a natural thyroid med because it comes from a pig but there is nothing natural about it! Anyway, My new doctor asked me to try Tirosint because it was in a liquid gel form and i...

combitic global caplet tiroy-100

I just received a refill for what is supposed to be a generic for Synthroid in blister packs. The generic name on the packet is l-thyroxine sodium and looks like the name brand is Tiroy-100 and indicates it is manufactured by Combitic Global Caplet. The pill itself is small pale orange round shaped. There are no markings on the pill. I went to their website, which is very low rent looking, to look for a photo of their pills to make sure it was authentic and l-thyroxine sodium, Tiroy-100, or thyroid meds do not turn up as being manufactured by this company. Does anyone know if what I received is a good brand? Now I'm afraid to take them. ## No answer for you, but I ordered 200mg and just received it. Have you taken it? If so, how do you feel? ## has anyone used albendazole tablets IP...

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...

I stopped taking my thyroid meds two weeks ago cause dont have the money for them o was on 75 mg levothrox i feel shakey tired aggitated angry chest hurts throat sore. Amd feel large very tired my blood pressure is also high could it be from this its only been two weeks . ## Hello, Krostie! How are you? Yes, those symptoms could be from going off of the medication, as well as the fact that your thyroid is now left to be out of control. You may also experience nausea, chills and diarrhea, as listed by the FDA. How high is your blood pressure? That could be dangerous, so you need to see a doctor to have it checked it out and rectify this situation. ## I was on the same med and i was so sick and kept blaming it on other things until i did lots of research and found out that that is common....
