Thyroid Overview

The thyroid gland, or simply the thyroid, 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 thyroid also produ...

Insurance Covers Medication But Forced to Pay Cash?

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...

thyroid meds and high blood pressure

My drug store has switched my thyroid manufacturer from Mylan to Lanne. Since taking the same dosage of 88 mcg, my blood pressure has gone up considerably and I don't normally have high blood pressure. I have some of the older ones and have taken them for the last 3 days and my bp is back to normal. Is this just a coincidence or should I talk to the drug store? I also feel jittery in the neck area. I had the radio active iodine treatment 3 years ago. I feel like my thyroid is out of wack again. I don't have an appointment with my endocrinologist for 3 more months. ## I have been taking a 125mg synthroid and have gain extremely weight! I have to be cleared to have surgery but i think my levels off do you think i will Be cleared? Since i have gain so much weight does this mean my ...

Levothyroxine vs. Levothyroxin

I had thyroid cancer and had a TT in 2017. I've been on Levothyroxine 150mcg for almost a year. The pills have always been light blue colored and round with a stamp of jsp on one side and 520 on the other side of them. I recently switched pharmacy and just opened them to discover the label says Levothyroxin 150 mcg tab Santos. They are blue, oval and say 150 on one side and GG 338 on the other. They look NOTHING alike and are not called the same. There was plenty of room on label, so its not that there wasn't room for the 'e' at the end. Am I taking the same stuff? It's been hell getting my levels right and I have nodules growing again and monitoring my antibodies for the cancer. I cannot afford to be on a lesser effective drug. Are these the same? They sure look tot...

Synthroid and Levothyroxine tablets taste just like SUGAR!

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 underac...
