Can overdose: If the synthroid (thyroxine) is not prescribed for the child, the child can have an overdose which can be dangerous.

Weird question: Hi. If I understand, you mean what would happen if a person without hypothyroidism takes Synthroid (thyroxine)? If a non-hypothyroid person took a high enough dose, it would make the person hyperthyroid.

What to do if i was feeling better when i started to take Synthroid (thyroxine) and now i feel terrible. What happened?
Absolutely NONE: So called "armour" thyroid is garbage, it's ground up pigs. It's not even standardized on the basis of thyroid hormone content. T3 (liothyronine) is short-lived in your system and potentially dangerous. It's also impossible to check levels in your blood. Stick w/brand name T4 replacement and make sure your levels are normal. Your symptoms may are probably not due to the thyroid medication. ...Read more

Synthroid (thyroxine) vs NDT: Synthroid (thyroxine) is not for everyone. Many feel much better with NDT (natural desiccated thyroid)... Armour, Westhroid, NatureThroid. I specialize in this and help people transition from synthetic to natural. A good book to read is "Stop the Thyroid Madness, II" of which I authored Chapter 3.

It may atually help: Goiters or enlarged thyroid glands usually are caused by autoimmune thyroid disease. This will eventually cause the thyroid to become underactive(hypothyroid).
