Thyroid Overview

The thyroid gland, or simply the thyroid /θard/, is an endocrine gland in the neck, consisting of two lobes connected by an isthmus. It is found at the front of the neck, below the Adam's apple. The thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones, which primarily influence the metabolic rate and protein synthesis. The hormones also have many other effects including those on development. The thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) are created from iodine and tyrosine. The thyroi...

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...

Stopping Levothyroxine
122 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: Since you've been taking this medication for so long, I would consider contacting your doctor about this if you have be...

Levothyroxine side effects
488 Replies RSS
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 am cold all the time again and i am dizzy. I came home from work...
