Discussions that mention synthroid

I think it depends on how sensitive your body is to changes like this. If you aren't particularly sensitive, .050 mgs is not that high a dose, and you should have little trouble with it. For myself, I started on .075 mg Synthroid, and it hit me like a ton of bricks; but then, I am a sensitive type. This does NOT mean you will have the same reaction. But if you're more like me, it won't hurt to take half the dose for a few days to a week, then increase to the full dose.
Wishing you the best!
