Discussions that mention synthroid

Hair Loss / Alopecia board


I had a subtotal thyroidectomy in April this year due to (benign) multinodules, and am taking 100mcg of Synthroid daily.

The only problem I have is a lot of hair loss, a general hair loss all over my head. Has anybody else had this experience? Is the hair loss temporary or permanent? Should I change medications?

Evening primose oil might help, and I bought some yesterday. Also I've read that Biotin might help.

This is very very distressing. I feel like I've lost half my hair, which used to be long and thick.

Please, anybody with this experience, please let me know how it turned out for you.
