If you're on Synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroidism and having side effects what other med would you prescribe?

If you're on Synthroid (thyroxine) 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

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

My TSH levels are at a 4.25. I am currently taking 50mcg of synthroid (thyroxine). My doctor upped my dose to 75mcg. I am afraid of side effects like racing heart?

Take it: Adjusting a thyroid medicine is both an art and science. You need to be "euthryroid" meaning normal tsh, t3, (liothyronine) T4 and must feel well as the normal range is made for a population and not your particular body. Fine adjustments must be made between you and a trusted doctor with an aim to make you feel well and healthier and avoid side effects such as palpitations. So go slow. ...Read more
