thyronorm overdose

A friend has taken 20 pills of thyronorm 25mcg out of hysteria.. What might be the repercussions? Please reply urgently. ## If you have reason to fear for the life and health of a loved one, you should contact your nearest emergency services or take them to the nearest emergency department, rather than posting online and waiting for an answer. And overdose of any medication is dangerous and risks death, organ damage and other serious health repercussions. High doses of the Levothyroxine in this creates the risk of seizures, strokes, heart palpitations and extremely high blood pressure. Even if she showed no ill effects, at the time she took them, she needs to see a doctor, because she could have done other damage to her body. How is she doing? ## I take 50mcg thyronorm daily. What if i ...

thyronorm dosage

Hello, My wife had a tsh level of 7.2 in first 3 weeks of pregnancy than we started thyronorm 25 mcg we continued it and in 10 week pregnancy tsh came out to be low as 1.2 than i continued the same medicine but last 3 days back i got her tsh as 8.2 so now should i increase the dose of thyronorm to 25 mcg to 50 mcg or 100 mcg please suggest. Her delivery is due after 10 dayss only..... ## Her doctor should be making the decisions on whether or not she needs a dosage adjustment. What have they advised? Since she is pregnant, it is especially important that this be monitored and her dosage adjusted very carefully. Her doctor should be helping and this shouldn't be left up to your guesswork. No one online can make these types of decisions based on just the information in a short interne...

Swelling in legs and feet levothyroxine

I just started taking Levothyroxine 2 wks ago my legs and feet are swollen so bad by nite I can barley walk. They go down a little at nite but swell back. I am taking 25mcg and I am afraid to continue taking this med. Has any one else had this problem? ## Have you contacted your doctor? It sounds like you might be having a bad reaction to this medication and it may not be the right one for you, or may be too high of a dosage. Generally, the symptoms of a dosage being too high will start to manifest 6 days or so, after you start taking it and this type of fluid retention can be one of them and there is a chance that it could lead to congestive heart failure, if that's what's causing it and it isn't rectified. You should really contact your doctor immediately. ## I am on medic...

Levothyroxine and Ringing in the Ears

I was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism after having my thyroid tested and my TSH was 5.9. I have been taking Levothyroxine since the end of June. The middle of July I started having non-stop ringing in my ears and still continues. I also have experienced severe hair loss and cannot put weight ON.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, hair loss, and weight changes. ## I noticed the same strange odor.

Ive been taking levothyroxine sod 0.125 for a long time now and managed to keep a stable weight. However, I am trying to drop more with cardio, weight training and a strict diet.

When is the last time your levels were checked? Depending on their levels, some people do skip days of this medication, or alternate doses to maintain the ideal levels, however, you should check with your doctor, before doing so. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes and hair loss. ## Hi thank you for replying. I have had my levels checked Jan 2016.

Levoxyl and Warnings Of Different Thyroid Medications Ingredients!

Hashimotos thyroiditis patients beware of the fillers and Crospovidone/Povidones in your thyroid medications! I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis over 20 years ago and I took Levoxy that whole time and did great on that brand of medication. Levoxyl was taken off the market as everyone knows back in 2013 and that was the start of my throid hell! I was switched to Levothyroxine by Lannett- Walgreens brand. I had a very bad allergic reaction due to the iodine and acacia in the pill. Then I switched to levothyroxine by mylan- Target Store brand and I had another bad allergic reaction due to the Crospovidone and Povidones (non organic iodine) in the pill. Finally I discovered Levoxy is back on the market again so I rushed out to change my medicine back to levoxyl. Come to find out so...

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...
