Anyone allergic to thyroid med?

I keep getting red arms and hands after taking my levothyroid.
And some itch at different spots.
Wondering if anyone does this?

Re: Anyone allergic to thyroid med?

I haven't been on the synthetic, but I had strange reactions to one of the generic natural meds - switching brands seems to have worked (today!), so you might want to look at that. Often it's the binders and not the active ingredient that's the problem. Do you have other allergies?

Re: Anyone allergic to thyroid med?

Tumblina's suggestion about allergy to the binders, dyes, and fillers is a good one. Hypo people are sensitive to such allergens anyway, so it's entirely possible that there's something about that brand that's making you itch and break out.
Report this reaction to your doctor and ask for another kind.
