Discussions that mention synthroid

Open to All Other Health Topics board

I have known a couple of people when they first started on thyroid medication (Synthroid if I remember correctly). They had the same fatigue and it took several adjustments of their medication dosage before they started to feel normal.

Check with your doctor.

Good luck!

Did your doctor schedule a follow-up appointment? You should have your blood test re-done a month after you started the medication to check the level of thyroid function. Did you get prescribed Synthroid? There is also the generic Levothyroxin or L-thyroxin (same thing) which is what I take. Make sure you're taking the pills as prescribed: Take in the morning, on an empty stomach, with a full glass of water, wait at least 4 hours before taking Antacids, Iron or Vitamin/Mineral Supplements. You want to give the medication the full advantage of being absorbed into your system for it to start working fastest.
