It can be lethal. Call your doctor.

I called him and he stated "there is nothing I can do for you".
I'm looking for a new PC Dr.

Gee nice doctor! I have no thyroid because of thyroid cancer. It was removed. I cannot live without the synthroid because I can die since it's acting as my thyroid.

Try to find an endocrinologist they study the endocrine system.

I don't know if this helps but if you can't get help from Abbot, Walmart has them on their $4 list. (If there's a Walmart where you live) I believe they even have a $10 for 90 day supply too. I wish you good health!

The medication offered at Walmart isn't Synthroid. It is a generic levothyroxine. Yes. There is a huge difference. My insurance stopped paying for Synthroid and switched me to a generic. I gained 50 pounds. My hair was shedding everywhere. And if I told you what my blood test said, you probably wouldn't believe me.

Please don't stop taking it. My sister did because she felt it was making her sick and ended up with Myxedema - which can be deadly!
