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.

Nightmares with 150mcg of Levothyroxine
I was told to take it on an empty stomach, so I have been taking it in the morning as soon as I wake up, and I don't have anything to eat or drink (except water) for an hour and a half after I take it. If your hypo symptoms are getting better, keep on the dosage...the nightmares will ease out.

Pain and Levothyroxine
My Aunt and I have been on levothyroxine for 4 years and both of us had aqquired constant back pain.. It was so severe for me that they did a MRI on me and couldn't find why the pain.. I recently changed from Levothyroine to Nature Thyroid and I have not had any pain since.. I did not connect the two. My Aunt went off of levothyroxine for a couple months and she did not have any back pain. When she went back on levothyroxine her back pain returned but we still did not connect the two. My Aunt
