(By eHealthMe on Mar, 4, 2014)
Severity ratings: 3.0/4
On a scale of 1 to 4: 1=least, 2=moderate, 3=severe, 4=most severe
We study 62,708 people who take Levothyroxine. Among them, 2 have Pvc (premature ventricular contraction). See who they are, when they have Pvc (premature ventricular contraction) and more. This review is based on reports from FDA and social media, and is updated regularly.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (52 minutes ago):
My Crestor was recently increased from 10 mg. to 20 mg. secondary to abnormal labs. I wasn't totally NPO as I had coffee with cream approx. 6 hours earlier. My physician felt that he could allow for this when he read the results. After approximately a week or less the fingers on my right hand felt tired and stiff like I had been tournament bowling. I very quickly progressed to joint pain, specifically the middle finger which was extremely painful at times. I have a neuropathy in my left hand, so I can't compare the two hands. I stopped the Crestor for a couple of days and it seemed to improve. I was wondering if the sudden increase in Crestor could cause that particular joint pain.
From this study (14 hours ago):
For about 6 weeks I have had these symptoms. After much internet research
I feel as though I am histamine intolerant. I have been on a low histamine
diet for 4 weeks. I have seen an improvement. I have tried daosin supplement
once..did not help much. Plan on taking 2 capsules next. This is pretty miserable(symptoms,diet and bad constipation issues; taking Fibercon) ALSO, have discovered I am reacting to food dyes and supplements.
From this study (3 days ago):
Synthroid 112 mg has added red color AND SUGAR.I am allergic to red. Changed to 2x50 and 1/2 of 25 mg. STILL SUGARS IS VERY BOTHERING.
Hydroxyzie was very effective for controlling allergies and help with sleep. Tinnitus is most bothering during the day, less in the morning. I am not steady, have ear ache and feel noxious. Also have stomach pain.
MFS is on and off. Less in warmer weather.
