What would be an example of a high dose of Synthroid?
22 Jun 2010
Synthroid is available in the following strengths:
Levothyroxine 25 mcg
Levothyroxine 50 mcg
Levothyroxine 75 mcg
Levothyroxine 88 mcg
Levothyroxine 100 mcg
Levothyroxine 112 mcg
Levothyroxine 125 mcg
Levothyroxine 137 mcg
Levothyroxine 150 mcg
Levothyroxine 175 mcg
Levothyroxine 200 mcg
Levothyroxine 300 mcg
A high dose should be 300mcg which is the maximum strength available, 122 mcg would perhaps still be considered a mid range dose, however please check with the doc/pharmacist for more accurate medical info, hope this helps?
