What is the difference and do I add the two pills together or drop the first prescription one and give only the second one prescribed ?
I've switched between the two and my dosage always remained the same. I believe they both contain Levothyroxine as the active ingredient. It seems that the doctor is increasing your son's dose by 50mcg but I would call his office and ask, just to be sure. Keep him on the same dose until you get a definitive answer. This is too important to guess at.
Can't guess these are the same medication different strength you are going to have to call the doctor and find out what he or she had in mind. Seems strange it would be dropped that much did your son say anything or did he just have a blood test. for the weekend keep him on the same one if you have to then call the doctor Monday and find out what is going on keep him on the same medication he has been on until you get the answer.tomorrow.

I am taking T3, Liothyronine; I do not believe in taking T4, Levothroid (which the body does not always convert to T3 going to the cells) and that is why people get hypothyroidism... as well as rt3. rt3 is the pooling of T3 in the blood without going where it should: the cells!!!
I do not believe in T4 treatments. They only make people more hypothyroid when in my case, I do not convert T4 to T3.
