I did not take my pill last night 175 mcg of synthroid (thyroxine) so I took it this morning at 10 then tonight I accidentally took two will I be ok?

Should be...oops : (: At 35 y/o if u have no other major med conds u should be fine. Synthroid (thyroxine) builds up slowly and stays a while. Not being perfect on timing is not a major concern. 525mcg in 1 day is a little<1/2 of what is in your body, a pretty big dose. U may feel get a jittery, shaky or have some palps. If sig sx's see your doc! Skip 2 doses & restart as usual. I must add, some try it for wt loss->very unsafe! ...Read more

Trying to conceive taking prenatal vitamins at night and now can't sleep. Have to take at night due to synthroid (thyroxine). Is this normal reaction to prenatals?

Trying to conceive taking prenatal vitamins at night and now can't sleep. Have to take at night due to synthroid (thyroxine). Is this normal reaction to prenatals?

Don't take at night!: This isn't exactly "normal" but not unheard of, as prenatal vits have B complex which can be stimulating & can cause insomnia. Just because you take synthroid (thyroxine) doesn't mean you have to take them at nite. One shouldn't take calcium at the same time but you can take it a few hours later- try the prenatal with lunch. You might need T3 too- see http://tinyurl. Com/n4zmkro

Each morning before I take my synthroid I feel very bad and about 1 hr after taking it feel good. Why is that? Does it wear off by the morning?

Possibly, ..: Everyone metabolizes medications differently, and in your case, your symptoms are what they are, so it is possible the meds are waxing in the AM. Try talking to your Dr. And maybe taking the meds at Noon or even in the PM hours may help decrease the feeling you get in the AM. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is there a difference between levothyroxine and synthroid? I was told to take name brand because it's better. I thought it was the same thing.

Is there a difference between levothyroxine and synthroid? I was told to take name brand because it's better. I thought it was the same thing.

Synthroid (thyroxine) better: Synthroid is a brand name t4, levothyroxine is the name of the generic. Many studies have indicated the brand name is more reliable and consistent. However, your insurance company will probably want you to take the generic because it's cheaper.
