Bad Levoxyl?
Jun 11, 2013
... Dr. just called in Tirosint for me after we did blood test last week and they were similar to the labs I had in the "good" levoxyl days. I plan to pick the Tirosint up this week but may give Synthroid a couple more weeks to see if I positively adjust even more. ... (20 replies)
... etc. but then after a year i started getting really hot, sweaty, irritable when i would take my meds. the DR changed it to Levoxyl and upped the dose to 100 mcg. ... (2 replies)
... I got a little acne in the beginning (like 2 or 3 blemishes) but I stopped breastfeeding the same month I started synthroid and that may have been the cause- I had the occasional blemish before I got pregnant and haven't had one since I stopped breastfeeding, so a total of 3 years. Occasionally, some people become a bit more hypothyroid on the starting dose of medication. I... (12 replies)

... I haven't been diagnosed with Hashis yet...just have a "high normal" TSH level. I am very happy to have found a doc who treats symptoms and not just numbers. I researched for months to find her and waited forever to be seen. I just don't want to take a med until my labs come back. If they come back abnormal, then I will take the meds for sure. I don't feel terrible to the... (12 replies)

These are my levels and Im on a rollercoaster with the tiredness, depression,... (0 replies)

... I tried Armour a while ago, (over a year now) also at 90 mcg. I was not successful with it. Like you I had very bad heart palps., nervousness, uncontrollable shaking, etc. My doctor felt it was because the ratio of T4/T3 was too much for me. You do not give the lab ranges in your post, so I am assuming they are similar to the common ones of FT4-0.7-1.8, and FT3 at 2.4-4.2.... (6 replies)
... Yes my doc always does labs before my appointment, and other than the heart palpitations, he was quite pleased with the numbers, here they are: TSH - 0.24 (I had RAI treatment this past summer) F T4 - 1.57 F T3 - 3.74 From what I can understand my T3 looks alright, but I am going to ask him about incorporating Cytomel, as long as it doesn't do a number on the heart...

... hello, I've been on combo levoxyl/cytomel for over 2 weeks and have had the blues lately; however, at this point I'm blaming it on being hypo/waiting for the meds to take full effect (in another 2-4 weeks, I hope). As Midwest stated, different meds can do different things - or not be effective enough - in different people. A LOT of us have experienced this dilemma. Did... (4 replies)
... u for your input. I am pretty sure my doctor will switch my meds, and like you said they can have different results on different people. I sure hope it's not a depression thing, I don't want to have to be on another medication as well! ... (4 replies)
... There shouldn't be anything about Levoxyl that inherently causes depression or mood swings. In my lay opinion, it simply isn't working as well for you in controlling those symptoms as the Synthroid was. ... (4 replies)
... I was wondering if anyone out there has experienced depression whilst taking Levoxyl. ... (4 replies)
