I started taking this about 3 weeks ago since my levels went low. I had nodules causing horse and blockage in my asophogus so they removed one side and the middle Thyroid a year and half ago. This medicine has helped some symptoms but made me feel real sick to my stomach and I just felt sick all over. I wanted to crawl into bed and not move. I read wear it is better to try the natural method, so I am trying Thyro-Gold in replacement of my Levothyroxine. I would start feeling sick within 10-20 minutes of taking the levo and have take the other the past 3 days. Feel much better than I did on the levo. Waiting to see if it takes away more symptons that the levo did. Every sympton out there it seems I have for low thyroid levels. It has been creaping up on me for years. I have many friends on the Levo and are doing fine. Any thoughts on this?
Levothyroxine is used to treat an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). It replaces or provides more thyroid hormone, which is normally produced by the thyroid gland. Low thyroid hormone levels can occur naturally or when the thyroid gland is injured by radiation/medications or removed by surgery. Having enough thyroid hormone is important for maintaining normal mental and physical activity. In children, having enough thyroid hormone is important for normal mental and physical development.
This medication is also used to treat other types of thyroid disorders (such as certain types of goiters, thyroid cancer).
This medication should not be used to treat infertility unless it is caused by low thyroid hormone levels.
