I was on Levothyroxine (25 mg and 50 mg alternate) a generic medicine for brand name synthyroid after I was diagnosed with sub-clinical hypothyroidism. After 2 months,I felt really good with the medicine, I went for my blood work and my TSH was way too low -0.002 and my dr prescribed me the brand Synthyroid for the next 2 months - Synthyroid worked pretty well, although my symptoms were still the same.. and I had unbelievlable amount of hair loss!!! I was so worried and I went back to the dr and asked her to switch me to another name brand - Levoxyl. This is my second day on Levoxyl, I just wanted to know if it is the same as Synthyroid and does it also have the side effects of hair loss??
