Thank you both for your responses. As for the prescription, I found out that my pharmacy does also sell Synthroid in bottles of 100, but over three months it's cheaper for me to pay my insurance co-pay by about $25. I appreciate the information.
As far as the dose, yes I am about 20 pounds overweight so that would explain the higher dose. If that's the case and I lose weight then I'm assuming it'd be natural for me to require less of a dose later??? Thanks so much for explaining the weight issue. I hadn't taken it into consideration.
I love having this board to turn to for answers. This is only the third time I've posted, but I've always had thoughtful, considerate, and compassionate responses! Thanks to ALL of you!!!
