Can levothyroxine cause diarrhea
I have been taking levothyroxine 50 mcg for about 4 yrs but my doctor increased my dosage to 75mcg it gave me diarrhea on and off for two months and then it stopped now he got me on 88 mcg and that's also giving me diarrhea is this normal because when I was on 50 mcg I never got diarrhea

All the brands..the 50mcg pilsl are the "purist" version of the levothyroxin medicine.

The reason you didn't get diarrhea with the 50 mcg table is because it doesn't have a lot of fillers and other stuff like sugar free sweeteners ,which by the way, can does cause diarrhea.

levothyroxine has mannitol in it which is a type of sugar free sweeter. I have the same reaction to it and am switching to another brand.
