  • Syntroid and pruritus
    I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
  • 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.

  • From this study (11 hours ago):

  • The most severe have been persistent for several months now and are only getting worse. The severe are becoming more and more persistent and also only getting worse. I've tried to pinpoint anything in my diet or other things that could potentially cause some kind of allergic reaction, but I haven't discovered anything that could do all of this. I'm so upset about it. Its having a huge impact on my life. I'm an active girl and this has continued to cause me a lot of grief. I don't know what's wrong with me. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE help me!

  • 2weeks after starting to take synthroid 25 mg., I started with urgency & frequency urinary discomfort at night to the point where I cant get comfortable to sleep...now I am 2 months in taking the synthroid and my discomfort is so unbearable it brings me to tears... I do get kidney stones often, but was ruled out...had a pelvic ultrasound, found bilateral cysts....and last week had a cystoscopy to rule out other...all clear, urologist diagnosed me with Interciystal cystitis...I think the synthroid has something to do with it...my Doctor just switched me to Armour Thyroid today...I will try anything at this point
