Tirosint and confusion, memory loss and brain fog
| Romi
I used to take NatureThroid only. Now on !00 mg Tirosint and 32 mg Naturethroid to keep levels even. Suffering from brain fog, memory loss, confusion and lack of concentration. Marked difference from when I was only on Naturethroid. Has this occured with anyone else?

Levothyroxine does cause jaw clenching
| Jaw clencher
I can't take any kind of ssri's for depression or any kind of medication to treat ADD because I get severe jaw pain. So I don't, but it is very disappointing to me that both synthroid and tirosint, different brands of levothyroxine for hypothyroidism cause jaw pain as well. And even more disappointing is that my doctor won't believe me that this is causing it. I guess I have to take it though.

Don't ignore Joint Pain on Levoxyl!
| Syd
Where do I begin? I am a 27 year old female with a history of gluten intolerance, egg allergy and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis since 2011 (previously diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in 2006 which later normalized for a period).
I was prescribed Levoxyl in 2011, and for over a year, I suffered from debilitating joint pain, fatigue and a muscle ache/stiffness. While these are also common symptoms of hypothyroidism, my TSH, T3, T4 levels were all normal on 88 mcg of Levoxyl daily. I started Vitamin D supplementation (for lab level <2, undetectable), which provided mild relief but the joint pain persisted.
My joint pain migrated from shoulders one minute, to knees, to wrists and ankles. My joints became EXTREMELY noisy, popping and creaking with every single movement. Even people close to me asked me what was going on!
Once Levoxyl was recalled (a blessing in disguise), I was switched to Tirosint. I was fine on Tirosint for over two years, with complete resolution of my joint/muscle complaints. As of January 1st, I found out that my health insurance plan is no longer covering Tirosint, and have been switched back to Levoxyl. Like clockwork, after one week on the Levoxyl , my joint pain has returned in full force. I am a fourth year medical student preparing to start residency in July and have no idea what I am going to do until then. In the meantime, I have a few samples of Tirosint to last me until April thankfully!

What have you done since you wrote this? Are you back on Levoxyl? I'm on Levothyroxine, have been for three years. I hurt and ache in my back, legs, arms, everywhere. I'm now wondering if this could be my problem. Of course I'm considerably older than you but I didn't have this before. Tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor and hopefully he will let me try Naturethroid. I hope you're doing okay and residency hasnt been too bad.

My Endo placed me on Tirosint 50 mcgs. Stayed on it for about 2 weeks. TSH went from 8.2 to 4.8 but by the second week I had intense burning in my stomach and severe nauseau. So much so that urgent care PA sent me to Emergency fearing a gall bladder attack - false alarm. In addition I always felt buzzed, had insomnia, and then skin started to flake off. Endo switched me to 50 mcgs of levoxyl today. Weird after years on synthroid and then levothyroxin with no effects synthroid gives me a bad reaction. My Endo won't let me go back on Generic until he exhaust all brands because my levels varied too much on the Sandoz Generic

Tirosint Review
| Pam
My doctor switched me from Synthroid to Tirosint about a year ago. Since taking Tirosint, I have gained weight and my hair is falling out. Recently, I have noticed achy muscles. I reported this to my doctor and he has switched me back to Synthroid. In the beginning, it was a wonder drug but over time, my weight began to increase.. This medicine cost me $100.00 a month because my insurance does not cover it.
