I have been on synthroid for several years, but just recently started itching basically from head to toe. Is it possible that I am having a reaction to the medicine at this point?

foster0531, Hello, Itching is not a side effect of Synthroid. Could you be allergic to something new maybe? A new soap, laundry soap/products, new lotion etc.? Synthroid can make you sweat more so maybe a oatmeal bath may help also, good luck my friend itching is no fun, hope you can find the culprit.

Yes you are experiencing some side effects from this med.
As with any medication, Synthroid can also cause allergic reactions. Seek medical attention immediately if you develop signs of an allergic reaction, including:
An unexplained rash
Unexplained swelling (especially of the lips, mouth, or throat).
What concerns me is that you mention you have been on this med for several years and only know you develop these side effects,contact your Doctor.
I am not a Doctor Just a caring individual.
Best of luck!
