I have better results on synthroid, levoxyl. The brand. Generics vary in dose and for this med I have to be accurate. If cost is a factor then the generic will be ok. My recommendation is the brand for exact dosing. My endocrinologist agrees. I have used the generic and did experience a difference and more frequent adjustments. Karen
