Discussions that mention synthroid

And marla -
You're on a very low dose of synthroid. 0.05 mg (50 mcgs) is a common starting dose, but it is seldom enough for anybody in the long run. If you are still very symptomatic, you should push your doctor to try you on more thyroid hormone, or consider switching to Armour. You may end up needing to find another doctor who will treat your symptoms and not just your TSH result.
