I was on this medication for 10 years and was feeling so much better when they decided to pull it from the pharmacy shelves... does anyone know why this happened? I am now at a loss as to what to take because of the side effects that I get from substituting with Synthroid and Levothyroxine generic.
I can't find any evidence at the FDA site that it has been recalled. Have you checked more then one pharmacy? I was told that my bp med was unavailable from the manufacturer so I went straight to the manufacturers web site and emailed them to find out the story. They tell me there is no shortage from them but that the distributor must have chosen not to purchase it for whatever reason. I challenged the pharmacy with that info, and low and behold it was available again, 6 weeks before they said it would be. Its possible that if you have problems with the generic, that a slight increase in dose would make a difference. Talk to your dr. But I'd call a few different pharmacies and ask first, including a mom and pop one.
