Re: What would happen if a normal person was given 50 mcg Synthroid?
First of all, I hope no doctor would administer any thyroid medication to a person free of thyroid issues.
Second, I would hope no one with a normal thyroid function would take medication that could affect their healthy thyroid negatively...where ever they got it.
Third, I take a rather small dosage of synthroid and it is 75 mcg, so 50 mcg would be even an smaller dosage. You do not mention over what time period this would be happening and how often they are taking the synthroid.
This question could only be answered correctly by a doctor who has studied this type of scenario for research, which would likely be hard to find.
I would never recommend anyone taking any amount of medication for an ailment one does not have. My best to you.
