Dosage of Levothyroxine Relative To TSH Level
3 Replies RSS Share
My latest TSH result was 0.426...below the normal to low range. My dosage was changed from 0.075 mg to 0.05 mg. Since my TSH was below normal, the latest dosage seems lower than the 0.075. I'm confused... ## @Dona, 0.05mg is indeed a lower dose than 0.075mg. If your thyroid hormone levels were on the low end, it does seem odd to me that the prescribing doctor would lower your dose; especially since levothyroxine is indicated for treating thyroid hormone deficiency... So I think any patient would feel confused by that decision... Have you discussed this predicament with your doctor yet to see what his/her view point is on the matter? Hopefully they had a good reason without trying to jeopardize your treatment. ## Hi. I am 11 weeks pregnant with hypothyroidism. My TSH is 4.6 so my doc...

Gain weight with thyroid medication

I have been on 50 mcg of levothyroxine for 5 months and I have gained 15 pounds. My doctor tells me that it should be the opposite and that I should loose weight. Is this possible? Have any of you taking this drug has experienced the same? ## I was on 50mg for about 2 weeks and noticed I had gained 10 pounds. So I stopped taking it and gained another 15lbs. now my test showed me to be 5.9 and my new doctor put me on 15mg. She said this will help me loose weight that the 50mg wasn't strong enough to help me not gain the weight. ## I have gained 15 pounds on synthroid. It made me edgy and caused gastrointestinal problems. ## I also was on Levothyroxine 50 for a few months and gained 10 pounds and had severe constipation. My doctor told me not diet and take Metamucil. I felt sure it wa...

TSH, Hypothyroidism
18 Replies RSS Share
I have had low thyroid hormone levels for a long time and may have some hopeful advice to others out there. Read about your disease on the internet and understand how you acquired low thyroid hormones. Find the list of symptoms one expects to see over time if unmedicated and the dangers of undiagnosed hypothyroidism. I have chronic migraines and the first time I took the medication for hypothyroidism i suffered an on-going migraine. So, I remained unmedicated until I was sure I couldn't stand it any more - the side effects I mean. I developed many of the symptoms that come with hypothyroidism and they are very difficult. I have acne, arthritis, thinning hair, chronic sleeping, weak and tired, dry eyes, slow metabolism and obesity, depression or for me lack of desire and motivation, ...

Synthroid (Levothyroxine)
19 Replies RSS Share
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...

thyroxine sodium tablets 100 mg instead of synthroid 75 mcg
3 Replies RSS Share
My wife is taking Thyroxin Sodium 100 mg for thyroid manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline India. Now I am in Canada and was taking the same with the consultation of the Doctor. Now the test is done and the thyroid is low. Now the doctor recommended Synthroid 75 mcg. My question is that whether I can take Throxin sodium instead of synthroid. ## Hi Subhash, Based on my research, Synthroid contains Levothyroxine; which is a synthetic version of the thyroid hormone thyroxine. Thyroxine is the natural hormone that is secreted by the thyroid gland. I can understand why you prefer the Thyroxine since it's not synthetic, but if your doctor suggested that you take the Synthroid (75 mcg) I'm sure he/she's just trying to do what's in your best interest. Nonetheless, if you like how the ...

Stopping Levothyroxine
126 Replies RSS Share
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...

thyronorm and pregnancy
5 Replies RSS Share
Hi, I am 8 weeks pregnant. My TSH thyroid level has come 308.2 in blood test during 6th week which is very high as compared to normal levels. I was not having any symptoms before conceiving so never consulted doctor. we got to know about TSH level only during blood test when I got pregnant..and it came 308.2, then we retested it again on empty stomach but it came 332..Doctor was wondering how i conceived at such high level of TSH. We have then consulted another physician. Doctor has prescribed 100 mcg thyronorm tablets (which I am taking everday on empty stomach) and suggested for retest after 1 month. I am really scared, can high level of TSH be a risk to pregnancy? Can it affect my baby or can it be controlled safely? Can you please advise and share your opinions? ## Yes, it can be co...

What Is The Sodium Content In Levothyroxine?
10 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking Levothyroxine 25mcg since July of 2010 and have been doing well on it. I have been wondering, being that the name of the med is "Levothyroxine Sodium", exactly how much (if any) Sodium is in the pill according to the dosage amount? Being that i'm trying to watch my sodium content i'm really curious about this. I have searched, and searched on the web and cannot find the answer i'm looking for. Maybe, and hopefully I can find my answer here. ## This doesn't refer to actual sodium as an ingredient, it refers to the type of chemical salt that the medication is made from. Thus, there is no reason to worry about your pills, any elements that may be in there are just trace amounts. This has to be done, to make medications safe for people with conditi...

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. I use to take a purple bill(75MCG) and was sent a blue pill 75MG. I call the pharamacy and was told is was the same but just a generic form. My body feels different too. I realy don't think I have the right dosage. ## Sandoz Pharmaceuticals list this tablet as containing 75mcgs of Levothyroxine, which is used to treat Thyroid disorders. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and hair loss. What symptoms are you experiencing that are making you feel different? When was the last time your levels were checked via blood work?

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.
