I have been on synthroid 100 mcg since sept 2014. About 6 months in, my skin started getting very try and my very hair brittle. Now 12 months on synthroid and my hair looks like someone on met. Any suggestions?
I've been taking it for several decades and haven't experienced any dry skin or dry hair. I have experienced hair loss and my ears aching but again, no dry skin or dry hair. I do have dry skin but that's something I've had before ever taking this thyroid medication. It could be a cause but I'm thinking Not. Please give your pharmacy a call and or you're doctor's office to speak to your doctor's nurse. Hope things are much better now. God Bless & Goodnight
