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. ...Read more
I'm taking 200mcg of Thyroxine Sodium daily for the past 12 years.If I switch to 200mcg of Levothyroxine Sodium instead, What will be the side effect?
Same thing: Hi. The only thyroxine sold as pure thyroxine is levothyroxine, so you should be fine. In other words, what was labeled as thyroxine was actually levothyroxine. After you make this switch, have your TSH and free T4 checked about 8 weeks later to assure biological similarity of the two different l-thyroxine preparations. Good luck! ...Read more
As i've thyroid, i'm taking l-thyroxine 100mcg medicine since one month. Pls tell me if there are any side effects of this medicine like weight gain..
No side effects.: Thyroxine is a replacement hormone that takes the place of your naturally occurring hormone. Thyroxine can give expected effects if too much or too little is taken but these are not "side effects." keep your TSH on the low end of normal - say below 2.5 and all will be well. ...Read more
If you're on Synthroid for hypothyroidism and having side effects what other med would you prescribe?
What side effects?: Hi. The only "side effects" would be if the l-thyroxine dose isn't right. L-thyroxine is the hormone the human thyroid gland secretes. The thyroid and its treatment gets blamed for more stuff it has nothing to do with than any other hormone system in the body. Be cautious in assigning blame to l-thyroxine...you're probably incorrect in your assessment. Any thyroid hormone prep can be used instead. ...Read more
Just started on synthroid (finally!!!) how long before symptoms improve (cold intolerance, brittle nails, hair falling out, constipation? What side effects should I watch for or expect? How long before dose increase?
I usually advise: my thyroid patients that it may be SEVERAl WEEKS for them to notice a "difference" and THAT is when I re-check the tests at 2 weeks to begin with! The "cold intolerance " is usually the first to "respond" BE PATIENT!!! It may take several visits before your problem is "sorted out" Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There are none: Synthroid 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 and then have effects of excess thyroid like rapid heart beat. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
