Is there a difference between brand name Synthroid and generic levothyroxine?
I was taking Synthroid (samples from my endo) for about one year until a correct dosage was determined. When blood tests showed normal thyroid,
the prescription came back from the pharmacy as levothyroxine which I
assumed would be the same as synthroid. I started having hot flashes and
now after three months on levothyroxine they have gotten quite severe.
Could the generic be the culprit? I did not have these flashes on the brand name. Is there a difference? Has anyone experienced differences between the two? I know that hot flashes can come with hypothyroidism but my
blood tests have shown normal thyroid.
