My dr priscribed me 37.5mcg thyroxine dose.i don't want cut 75mcgpill so can i take 75mcg pill every second day for same result?

Yes: Thyroid hormone has a very long "half-life". It will make no difference taking 75 mcg very other day vs 1/2 pill every day. However, a dose of 37.5 mcg daily is a very small dose for someone in your age group. If 75 mcg was too high a dose, you could be on 50 mcg as the next step down. ...Read more

37.5: 75 every day should be OK. When you get your next meds from your pharmacy make sure there is a line down the middle of the pill that makes it easy to break (not cut) in two. ...Read more

Partial thyroidectomy in 2006 for nodule, result was benign. Been on 100mcg Synthroid (thyroxine) but a new small nodule has appeared. Had ultrasound and told to not worry and come back in 1 yr. Do you agree?

Partial thyroidectomy in 2006 for nodule, result was benign.  Been on 100mcg Synthroid (thyroxine) but a new small nodule has appeared.  Had ultrasound and told to not worry and come back in 1 yr.  Do you agree?

Yes: Nodules are common in the thyroid. As long as you have thyroid tissues, there is always a chance of a new nodule popping up. If the past surgery was benign, and the new nodule is small, you can follow it with regular ultrasound and act on it (biopsy) only if there are significant changes on the ultrasound. ...Read more
