  • 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.

  • Nightmares more frequently since starting Flecainide about 1 1/2 years ago. The dreams vary in intensity and seem to be less on days when I have been very active and tired at bed time.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I was taking Levothyroxine before without bad dreams but my condition got worse and the doctor increased my dose which I've been on for about 2 weeks and every night since I have been having terrible dreams. This is the only medication I am on. I do have ADD, depression, and anxiety but I do not take medication for it anymore. I just want to know if the Levothyroxine is whats causing these nightmares. Thank you
