Discussions that mention lovastatin

Thyroid Disorders board

After my thyroidectomy, my cholesterol was 320!! After synthroid began it went down 60 points on its own. At that point, I had to go on Lovastatin and it is now 220. I haven't heard from the GP doctor yet about the cholesterol levels, he may want to increase my dosage of lovastatin. From what I hear, this is a very common problem with hypothyroidism.
