Synthroid isn't the only Thy med out there, even if we wereN'T considering Armour & Naturethroid. If your Dr isn't willing to look at other alternatives, especially KNOWING your headaches, its time to find another Dr.
I took .50 mcg's of Synthroid alone for 7 weeks. By week 4-5 my side-effects were:
2-4 hours sleep nightly
irratated / CRABBY
1) there was a cloud in my head - FOG head
2) I was taking DEPRESSANTS
When my Dr refused my request for Armour, and did NOT give an alternative med, KNOWING my side-effects I found another Doc!
Thyrolar, synthetic liotrix for thyroid hormone replacement, a combination of
L-triiodothyronine (T3) and levothyroxine sodium (T4),
I take Cytomel (t3 only med) now. Why couldn'y your Dr perscrib Thyrolar (t3/4 combo) or Cytomel to go WITh Synthroid??? Many, MANY patients feel better after T3 med or combo med is perscribed.
