Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
Symptoms vary, but throat swelling has worsened. Each time medication is adjusted, symptoms increase. Overdose on Levothyroxine (double dosage) was severe enough to cause inability to walk barely a few steps, followed by diarrhea, stomach cramps and flu like symptoms that lasted a week or more.
From this study (12 months ago):
Also take glucosamine and chondroitin for osteoarthritis and vitamin B complex
