Methimazole side effects

I have taken Methimazole 10mg 4 tablets a day. I started it in March and at the end of April I looked as if I had the chicken pox. It was a terrible reaction that was possible sulfate poisoning? ## From what I have gathered a rare allergic reaction to taking this medication is difficulty breathing, rash that may cause itching, swelling, and dizziness. Consult your physician right away. More details: Medline Plus

Tirosint is the best!

Was on Levothyrosin,synthroid, and Armor thyroid meds over the past 7 years. The experience that I had with each one goes as follows. Levothyrosin made me feel like crap! I was tired,moody,sad,and questioned my sanity while I was on it. Weight gain! Synthroid made my skin,hair dry and brittle! It made me feel very irritated about little things. Weight fluctuation! Next, Armor I liked because I felt great! It helped me get my skin and hair back on a healthy course. Weight loss 20lbs! However, finding a doctor to write a prescription for it became too difficult when I relocated. Every doctor I asked said it may be a natural thyroid med because it comes from a pig but there is nothing natural about it! Anyway, My new doctor asked me to try Tirosint because it was in a liquid gel form and i...

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...

From then onwards im not getting my periods.. will u please suggest me what is the problem why it is being delayed ? ## Have you spoken to your doctor about this, yet? It seems likely that it may be too high of a dosage for you and you might need it lowered. This side effect usually on occurs in people that have been given too high of a dosage.

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. It's pretty gross and I've never had this problem before but I think it does have something to do with Levothyroxine. ## Hi, I am on thyroxine 4 weeks now and also have gotten acne on my chin and around the mouth.

White small Round Pill M L on one side blank on other side

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...

M2 Tone Tablet non stop period side effect

I take M2 tone (2 tabs twice daily), but I have been suffering from non-stop periods during the past month. Is this a side effect? I stopped taking the tab out of fear. Doctors sent me in for laproscopy & suggested a hormonal tab by the name of Gonablok 200; two tabs daily for 2 months. After taking this I bled, I stopped the taking this too. I do not know if both tabs cause any problems. Before it I took more hormonal injections for my pregnancy, but had no results. Also I stopped taking Gonablok 200. Can I continue M2 tone tabs now? ## I have been taking m-2tone for 2weeks now and my period has bin continuous for about 2weeks and a 2 days now.although d drug was prescribed to me cos of pcos,wot could possibly be the cause?do I need to stop now? ## i have been taking M 2tone for 2m...

Propylthiouracil PTU

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 went off of ptu about 6 months ago and ended up in the hospital for atrial fibulation. 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. No one online can really answer that, since your full medical history, and TSH levels are unknown. 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...

levothyroxin tab

I am allergic to the dye in the 112mcg Synthroid tablets. Does anyone know of a 112mcg that is white??? Levothyroxine ? I am now taking 2 pills on 5 days and 3 pills on 2 days. 50mcg each. ## I am allergic to the dye as well, and should be on 112 mcg. too. I like your idea of 2 pills (white..50 mcg.) for 5 days, and 3 pills for 2 days. So glad you posted your idea. Splitting the pills just doesn't work. If any Manufactures are reading this, please refrain from putting dyes in meds!!! Serious side effects can result, and the dyes make it difficult for some of us to take the proper dosage amounts that are prescribed. ## Your pharmacy should be able to provide you with a dye free option, though they may have to order a supply in for you, so it is best to make sure to alert them to the ...

Armor 60 Mg Vs Synthroid 0 112 Mug

I have been on synthroid for approx 11 years. Some of my symptoms never went away. Cold hands &feet, losing (it does grow back, but I have a million baby hairs on my head) hair, etc. I read somewhere that changing from a strictly T4 (Synthroid) to a T3T4 (Armour) thyroid medicine would help. My doctor gave me the new medicine Armour 1 GR (60mg). I was on synthroid 0.112MG). Did my doc give me too high a dose of the new amrour medicine? I want my symptoms to go away but I don't want to overdose. Help! ## I was on Synthroid 0.112mg and the Dr. put me on Armour Thyroid 3GR. which is 180mg. I would say that your dose is closer to the equivelant of Synthroid then mine. I don't know what my last TSH, T4 levels were so I hope thats why he gave me such a high dose... All I know is I...

What is a light blue oval pill with an M on one side and L 11 on the other?

It was in with my Levoxyl pill container. Is is a generic pill? ## blue oval pill that has a M on the front, and a L and another letter on the back ## It is Levothyroxin 150 MCG (which is another generic for the same meds) I find levothyroxine works better than L-thyroxine- same shape, a bit darker blue - I think different strengths have different numbers on them. ## Hello, I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Weird way to see

Sorry, I just do not know what title to give this bizarre question. What condition, except hypothyrodism, can cause a person to see things dissociated? For instance, if a girl with a ponytail is walking past, I would see the ponytail following the girls head, a gap in between her head and hair. Should I look at a person, I may not recognise his arm as an arm, because I do not see the rest of him - as if I am standing too close to a very large image to make out detail. As a result, the arm, which I do see, may look like a branch. I am not English speaking, and I am also having trouble expressing myself in words. I could only hope that someone with insight will know what on earth is going on. This is happening more frequently since I started Thyroxine. Dr said my blood test (thyroid) came ba

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...
