Levoxyl (thyroxine) can potentially cause insomnia, especially at higher doses.

This is medication used to treat hypothyroid or thryoid replacement. Usually taken first thing in morning without other medications. If thyroid levels are up too high, can see insomnia. Usually the medication itself does not cause significant degree of insomnia.
