Question Medicine problems?????

Hi, my dr. did blood work and said that I had hypothyroidism, but I have alot of symptoms of hyperthyroidism, I go to endo dr. on Monday. I kind of hate taking medicines, just wondering if anyone has had any problems or reactions to any thyroid medicines.

Re: Medicine problems?????

When I started on 50 mcg of Synthroid, I got heart palpitations etc. Another time I got hives from the dye in the pills. Now I just take 12 mcg of the white pill.

You should contact your Dr.- maybe run the blood tests again. Fam

Re: Medicine problems?????

I too have many symptoms of Hyperthryoidism- extreme weight loss, tachycardia, heart palps, tremors... but am "borderline hypo".
Just started on synthyroid last week. Started out very slowly, 12.5. mcg. and titrating up. So far no problems, but I am still on a tiny dose.

The endo said some pt have both symptoms and do feel better once regulated.... so I am hoping and praying.
Good luck to you!!!!
