side effects

Hi I am new to this forum. I have been on Levothyroxine 100mcg for at least 8 months. I was treating for Hep-C , and my thyroid was not functioning. I was tolerating the Levothyroxine, until recently, my breasts have been leaking a small amount of fluid, and it will crust over and it is getting anoying, I do not know if this could be a side effect, or if I should see my OBYN about this I am 54 years old. I would appreciate any feedback on this subject, I went through the archives, could not find any such side effect thank you stalion

This is not a side effect of Levothyroxine. What could be happening is the medication for thyroid may not be balancing the thyroid out correctly and throwing off other hormones causing this issue.

My thought would be to ask for a full round of tests. Thyroid FT3 and FT4, FSH/LH - DHEA, A1C and your metobolic panel labs.
