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...

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...

went off thyroid meds feeling really sick

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....

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.

I am now 47 and have not had this problem since I was ...

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.

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...

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 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.

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...
