mylan vs sandoz levothyroxine

Hi all, I sure hope I can get some insight to this very worrisome problem.
I have be taking the levothyroxine 112 mylan lab pill for a long while. I get it at walmart. I also take the cytomel 5 mylan twice a day purchased from walgreens.

The problem is that walmart doesn't carry the mylan anymore. I was able to purchase a one year supply, but what then? I am freaking out! I am feeling great and my labs are good.

Now what the heck will happen if I start with the sandoz, which I researdched and found the fillers are very different from the mylan. I know this is bit long winded, but bottom line: what should I do?

Thanks in advance for all welcomed opinions. hapigirl

Re: mylan vs sandoz levothyroxine

When the year's supply is about to run out, you start looking for a retailer that carries Mylan, that's all. Walmart might even have it again by then. Most retailers purchase from the company that gives them the best deal. For now at Walmart, that's Sandoz. They could switch back again by next year. IMO, you're worrying too much too soon.

And then... There's no guarantee that the two products wouldn't work equally well. Have you ever taken Sandoz and had it not work? I'm completely on board with not rocking the boat. If one med works great, you should take all measures necessary not to switch. Unless Mylan goes out of business completely, I think you'll always be able to get it somewhere... even if not Walmart.
