Less Synthroid (thyroxine).: You should consult your physician regarding the dose of your medication synthroid (thyroxine). You are probably taking higher dose of medication than needed .The dose of synthroid (thyroxine) need to be decreased and you should get your TSH level checked. Make an appointment today.
