... to take the medication, I have severe panic attacks. Has tihis happened to anyone else ? Why is it happening after a year of taking it ?
Levothyroxine is a synthetic thyroid hormone you take daily for hypothyroidism. The thyroid gland regulates many hormone reactions in our bodies. A main one is our Metabolic rate. Kick our metabolism up high, and our bodies get ready for war (for example).Thusly, it too could cause panic attacks.
That is one explanation. If you keep having problems, see your Endocrinologist.
