As with any med, there can be different side effects that can occur - including interacting with your other meds (if you are on any).
As far as short term adverse events, here are some of the ones from the PI (the FDA requires all indicated medications to publish their study results and provide warnings for any adverse events that can occur at a noteable level during the usage of the product. FEW pharamcies or docs give this info out but they are always published on their website. This info is actually from the Syntrhoid - branded Levothyroxin - website):
tremors, muscle weakness, gastro issues (including elevated liver funtion tests), hair loss, decreased bone mineral density, increased appetite, heat intolerance, fever.... and so on......
Here is the link if you want to review it yourself.
she was given 0.1 mg 3x a day. Her care giver was a registered nurse. She is receiving treatment for her liver now. The dr won't come right out and say the thyroid medicine was the cause so we are searching everywhere trying to find as much info as possible. The dr may be trying to cover up......not sure on that one.
