Wait: Tsh measures how robust your pituitary can respond to the degree of hypothyroidism you have. It will take a few weeks to feel better if that is all you have.

I had an overdosage of thyronorm 88mcg accidentally. I had one befor breakfast and one after it. Will it have any side effects?

Possible: I do not think anything serious, but you may get excited, nervous and have increased heart rate. Do not take anymore today or tomorrow. You can restart your usual dose then.

Sir Is side effects of taking thyronorm is applicable only when overdosage is consumed or severe side effects is applicable also for regular intake?

Sir Is side effects of taking thyronorm is applicable only when overdosage is consumed or severe side effects is applicable also for regular intake?

It is thyroid hormon: And the level of it needs to be adjusted. The doses it comes in are the most common replacement thyroid hormone levels seen. BUT what level / dose a particular patient needs has to be adjusted. Often with checking the blood levels of thyroid hormones. A regular dose of thyroid for one patient is too much for others.

What are the common side effects of synthroid (thyroxine)?

What are the common side effects of synthroid (thyroxine)?

There are none: Synthroid (thyroxine) is a man-made replacement for your own thryroid hormone. There are no side effects per se because the drug will bind to the same receptors that your thyroid hormone binds to so the body does not use the drug as a synthetic. It is possible to take too much Synthroid (thyroxine) and then have effects of excess thyroid like rapid heart beat.

My TSH is 8.33. Started taking thyronorm 50mcg since one week. Are there any side effects of that?

Unlikely: That is a small dose and seems appropriate as a treatment for hypothyroidism. Most important is to follow up in a few months to see what the labs look like on this dose.

What are the side effects of levoxyl (thyroxine) hormone?

What are the side effects of levoxyl (thyroxine) hormone?

None: If the dose is appropriate, there should be no side effects of thyroid hormone replacement. The body does not differentiate a normal amount of thyroid hormone coming from your thyroid gland or from a pill.

What are the side effects of taking thyronorm 25 mg. I am 17 yrs old. My TSH is 6.4?

What are the side effects of taking thyronorm 25 mg. I am 17 yrs old. My TSH is 6.4?

Likely none: B"sd thyronorm 25 mg, you mean 25 mcg - is L-thyroxine also know as T4. It is one of the 2 important thyroid hormones in the blood. T4 replacement is the standard therapy for hypothyroidism, which is quite reliably indicated by your mildly elevated TSH. Dose of T4 titrated usually every 2 months with my usual "target" TSH is around 1.0.

Weights loss as a side effects of thyroxine use - how much is too much?

Weights loss as a side effects of thyroxine use - how much is too much?

When TSH is low: People who take thyroxine for simple hypothyroidism should have normal TSH to be safe. They should not loose weight, unless their prior weight gain was due to hypothyroidism. Taking too much thyroxine can cause atrial fibrillation and osteoporosis. On the other hand people with thyroid cancer are sometimes given a slight excess of thyroxine to prevent the cancer from returning.

Is one of the side effects of levoxyl (thyroxine) insomnia?

Is one of the side effects of levoxyl (thyroxine) insomnia?

Theoretically: 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.

How many weeks after beginning 25mcg of Synthroid (thyroxine) can side effects occur?

How many weeks after beginning 25mcg of Synthroid (thyroxine) can side effects occur?

Thyroid treatment: 25 mcg of levothyroxine is a very low dose; a normal dose for hypothyroidism is typically much higher. The only side effect is taking too much (hyperthyroidism: palpitations, sweating, tremor, etc) or not taking enough (hypothyroid: fatigue, cold, etc). But such symptoms can be from other things. You need to get levels checked and talk to the doctor who initially prescribed this.

My TSH is 8.33. And I have started taking thyronorm 50mcg since one week. What are the side effects of that medicine?

Thyroid replacement: Thyroxine will replace what your thyroid is supposed to be making. Your thyroid is apparently not making enough thyroid hormone, which is why your TSH is elevated. There should be no side effects, other than perhaps feeling better.

My 4 year old took 8 of my 200mcg synthroid (thyroxine). The p.A.-c said it would not bother him. But I am still worried. Is there instant side effects or longer?

Overdose: Call poison control right now. They will calculate how much he got according to his weight and they will tell you what you need to do and what symptoms he/she may have. Any time your child takes medications not prescribed for him/her always call poison control right away. The number should be in the front of your phone book.
