Synthroid side effects

Is itching a side effect of taking Synthroid? My number is 9 (normal range .40 - 5.50) How much should I be taking? Thank You ## I just got put on Synthroid. Are there any possible side effects with my Thyroid? I am on 25 mcg. ## Yes, that can be a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. You should take the dosage that has been prescribed for you. Are there any other questions?

Synthroid and Levothyroxine tablets taste just like SUGAR!
7 Replies RSS
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. 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...

what is myla levothyroxine
2 Replies RSS
I've taken this drug for sometime now, or at least one with a very similar look. Originally I had to be represcribed Levoxyl because of a DYE used in mfg.that made me itch profusely. Is it reasonable to demand name brand from the insurance. Any advice would be extremely appreciated. ## Hello, Shamsrumi! How are you? Are you having a problem with the generics? The only way most insurance plans will cover the name brand is if it's medically necessary. This medication is used to treat thyroid disorders and the FDA states that its most common side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes, mood swings and hair loss. ## Hello. I need your help with the same condition that everyone complains about here. I also have Hypothyroid and are on Levothyroxine Sodium 112 mcg 1/day ...

What prescription drugs contain sulfur?
3 Replies RSS
I have blisters on my tongue. I know that I am allergic to the atom sulfur as well as sulfa drugs. Do synthroid or trazodone contain sulfur? ## There are far too many to possibly list them all here. Synthroid, however, contains Levothyroxine and neither it, nor the Trazodone are sulfur based, to my knowledge, but you should check with your pharmacist to be sure, since I don't know what all the inactive ingredients may be. Are your doctor and pharmacist aware of your allergy? Can you post back with more information, such as the company that makes the Trazodone that you take, so I can check it for you? ## Does anyone know if I can use hydrocodone7.5 for break through pain. I am taking Oxycodone HCL 15mg for pain management but it's not holding my pain? ## Do the following meds con...

Taking Levothyroxine
5 Replies RSS
Hi everyone, I'm a sufferer from hypothyroidism; I was just wondering about how to take Levothyroxine; because I began taking it as one tablet of 25mcg....working up to two...then three...and then finally four 25mcg tablets, at which point a blood test told me through my doctor, that my thyroid was now apparently working well. I figured it would be OK for me now to take just one tablet, of 100mcg, rather than four ( was given a choice of both types). So once my 25mcg tablets started running to run out, that's what I did. However, whether I imagined it or not, I found myself happier on the four X 25mcg than the one X 100mcg. Is this normal? Should I worry? I have more or less run out of the 25mcg tablets for the time being...any suggestions what I might be going through, and what...

swelling in legs and feet levothyroxine
107 Replies RSS
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...

Please help. Is the levothyroxine making me crazy?
9 Replies RSS
I was diagnosed with hypothyroid about 7 yrs ago. I was taking 50 mcg of levothyroxine up until now. I am currently 29 weeks pregnant and my new doctor put me on 125 mcg. My doc says i have to be on a higher dose during pregnancy or the baby will be born with birth defects or have learning disabilities. The road has been really rocky. My moods have been up and down, i suffer from severe depression, mood swings, horrible anger, memory loss, bad anxiety attacks and fear of loosing myself. I litterally feel crazy. I asked my doctor and there is nothing she can do except put me on some antidepressant. I dont think i need that and i dont really like takin meds like that. I absolutely think the levothyroxine is making me worse. I feel suicidal and thats not something i want to feel esp. durin...

Sandoz Levothyroxine
3 Replies RSS
Recently filled a prescription for Levothyroxine 150 mcg and noticed a very fowl smell and ultimately a slightly different taste when taking it. One side of the pill is marked with "150" and the other side with "GG338." We questioned the pharmacist about this and they opened a new bottle that smelled the same to us, but she didn't smell anything so nothing was done. I know Levoxyl was discontinued for a while for this very problem. Is there any information out there about this Sandoz product? ## If you had a chance to read the FDA recall information, the odor it was recalled for was actually due to a problem with the absorbent canister that was packaged in the bottles, not the pills themselves. However, the odor was not found to cause any adverse health issues, or pr...

## what are the side effects of this drug? ## How is Armour Thyroid Replacement Hormone listed for side effects? I have taken it for years and have stacked on the lbs. I am just learning it may be the Thyroid medication that may be the issue. I take two strengths and alternate them daily. 90 one day and 120 the next, then back to 90 etc.... I am told by my dietitian I do not eat enough. I am also diabetic so sugar is eaten but rarely. I am a carb eater though. My sugars are almost in the normal range. So why all this weight gain? I understand other factors are involved here. But I wonder if the Thyroid is one of those factors? ## The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, hair loss, mood changes, and weight changes. Some people do gain weig...

thyronorm overdose
24 Replies RSS
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 ...
