I have tried both and feel better with Synthroid but the cost is SO much more.
I take Levoxyl because levothyroxine dissolved too quickly before I could swallow it. It would get stuck in my throat and it tasted awful. I think the name brands have a coating on them to prevent that. Technically they are supposed to have the same medication, but the inactive/binding ingredient would be different with each maker, so that could be affecting your experience with it. My pharmacy will look to see who the last manufacturer was that he gave you and try to keep with that same one because people do react differently to the medications.
