Can levothyroxine cause diarrhea
All the brands..the 50mcg pilsl are the "purist" version of the levothyroxin medicine.
April 15, 2014
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.

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
