Levothyroxine (25ug) for hypothyroidism

Since i started this medication my health has only gotten worse. All in all, i am pretty uncomfortable. Because of this, i have stopped taking this medication because it is only counterproductive towards my health. I'm going to try to use Tirosint instead, hopefully this will work better for me.

Levothyroxine (125ug) for hypothyroidism

The medicine works fine. The thyrax worked too, but i'm never going to take that again because i don't want to go back to the manufacturer that just let its patients sit for a year alone. That was too crazy for words.

I regret having been operated because when I see the health problems that I have because of the Lévothyrox new formula. Because before I had not all these problems but since the month of May, C is infernal. With the other formula, I was not felt damning enough like that.

Not being stabilized at that time my doctor put these side effects under the stroke of hormonal imbalance. But since my TSH rate is ba...

Levothyroxine (25ug) for gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GORD)

I take Levothyrox 25 since the year 2002 and I have never had a problem. Since the beginning of the year, I have big stomach problems, burning in the esophagus, fatigue, hot flashes. I had a fibroscopy but I did not find anything. I also saw an ENT. But nothing on that side either. Now I wonder whether it's not from the Levothyrox. I'll talk to my doctor on my next visit.
