If I go on a medication for hypothyroidism like Synthroid (thyroxine) to repair a short term issue secondary to other meds will I be dependent on it for life?
Should a person with hyper thyroidism take typical thyroid medication like Synthroid (thyroxine)?

A person with HYPOthyroidism who becomes hyperthyroid due to taking too high of a dose of Synthroid (thyroxine) might be asked to take Synthroid (thyroxine) (at a lower dose) even though she is temporarily hyperthyroid. ...Read more
