Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I had it before I started meds, and after I started Synthroid (T4). I had it get worse when I started becoming overdosed on the meds. I am not saying this is your case, you may be having adjustment time...you haven't been on it that long right? My best advice is to go slowly on the meds and make sure you give 6 weeks and then retest.

If you still feel like that or worse in six weeks, and labs show something strange, than you may need to change meds, go more slowly, or even up them....it is so unfortunate that with thyroid problems it takes sooo long to find out the best way to go on....Pixiek
