SORRY I ACCIDENTLY LEFT OUT THE 'H' IN THYROID AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO EDIT IT. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE USED THIS WEB SITE. ALSO I MEANT TO SAY 'THIS' PROBLEM
Try talking to a pharmacist and I think you will get a much different answer. Pharmacists know all medicines backwards and forwards, and you may have to change doctors if you keep having problems and your current doctor doesn't believe you.Thyroid conditions are pretty bad and can take a while to regulate. Make sure you get your bloodwork done on time. I hope you get some answers and relief soon.
Thank you so much for asking, and YES I am having this problem. It happened before. All of a sudden I felt icky all the time. I finally traced the cause to my levothyroxine. It turned out my local pharmacy had changed generic brands. They were very nice and just ordered from a different lab for me.
Why don't doctors believe us? Because they have been told repeatedly, mostly by pharmaceutical companies, that generics are exactly the same as the original. We know they aren't. The government allows a certain percentage of error (I've heard 20%) but more importantly, they all have different background or "inactive" ingredients
