  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Synthroid and breast enlargement
    I have went from a B-C cup size to a D cup in the past 8-9 months.
  • Double vision on levothyroxine
    Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
  • I switched to armour ,it's not synthetic.
    I went off after 7 years on it when I discovered a link to a higher rate of lung cancer. I switched to Armour and it handled the hypothyroidism way better.

  • High blood pressure - find the right medication (2 responses)
    I was going through the menopause with all the usual drama when I started feeling awful. Doc said that my blood pressure was through the roof and prescribed Lisinopril. This gave me technicolour dreams and a runny nose, so he switched me to Losartan. This made me soooo tired that I didn't want to get up. So then I tried Amlopidine. Fantastic! I haven't felt this well since I was on my teens. My message is ... don't put up with side effects. Change your drug until you find the one that works for you.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I wish to know whether it is advisable to take flaxseed and thyroxin. I have done this for many years and recently my thyroxin has been decreased from 125 to 100 effectively so seems OK but would appreciate your opinion. Thank you.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I just want to know what interactions--if any are known for these drug and herb combinations to help me choose which combinations to take. Radiotherapy is currently ongoing (day 2 out of 4-6 weeks). No chemotherapy. The last nine herbs/minerals are taken as an herbal tea. One of the herbs supplies selenium, so I listed it separately.
