Levoxyl and sore throat

Hi. I was diagnosed hypo after a routine blood test at a physical 6 weeks ago. Then I got a letter and a prescription for Levoxyl. The only thing my doctor has told me is that my TSH was 5.4. I actually have always had most of the symptoms of "hyper"thyroid and am surprised to be hypo.

Anyway....I have been taking 50 mcg of levoxyl for 6 weeks now and have had a sore throat for over a week. My doctor told me that there is nothing wrong with my throat. (He barely checked it along with my nose & my ears). Could this be related to the medication? I'm not hoarse; my throat just feels very scratchy all of the time. It is maddening.

Thanks.

Re: Levoxyl and sore throat

Hello. I am too on Levoxyl. When I first started the medicine it made me have a sore throat too. I have been off and on the medicine for about a yr now. If I stop using the Medicine and start right back up, i get a sore throat. I questioned my Dr. He didn't have any answers for me too.

The sore throat and Levoxyl problem, did it ever get resolved and how?
I've been on Levoxyl less than a week and my throat is sore and I am getting hoarse too. The first day I didn't take it with enough water as instructed in the drug's insert, because the pharmacist didn't put those instructions on the bottle.
When I called the makers of Levoxyl, they have informed the pharmacists that it SHOULD be on the label. Anyway, ever since that first day, I have been taking with a full glass of water, but the sore throat persists.
Any resolutions for this would be appreciated.

Re: Levoxyl and sore throat

I have been on 50mcgs of generic levoxyl for 5 weeks and have not had a sore throat. It taste like powdered sugar.
