Synthroid -- the drug from hell!

I was on synthroid for over 25 years after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and felt terrible! Thin hair, headaches, weight gain. My doctor just couldn't get the dosage right no matter what he did. I told him "If I had known I was going to feel like this the rest of my life, I would have chosen death from the cancer" and changed doctors. I have been on tirosint for 6 months now. My metabolism is coming back, my hair is thick and shiny, headaches are gone, no muscle cramps. Synthroid is

I am so glad that I went to this site!!! I had been on Synthroid before; but I found out that it contained Sulfites as a preservative and I've been allergic to them for years!!! My 'new Endo' placed me on Levoxyl in 2011 and I was so much better until it was pulled for a very lame reason in the Spring of 2013.
I went to the Levoxyl website and it returned to the formularies in early March 2014!!!

I so agree with you . I was on levoxyl since 1981 and was perfectly fine. I was put on synthroid when they pulled levoxyl off the market. My hair has thinned over the last several months and itches. I hate synthroid. I hope you are right about the return of levoxyl. Good luck .

thyroid and suboxone
OMG I can relate to you so well. It's really scary when I get the shortness of my breath. I feel like I'm drowning or like I need to get more air. I'm also having muscle jerks constrantly but they do not hurt just feel strange. My body feels like it's numb or asleep. If I sit very still my neck jerks . I also have hypothyroid and now moderate arthritis in my neck. I'd love to hear back from you or anyone who can relate. Larsy1566
