From this study (10 hours ago):
At age 78, I know I must have some arthritis in most of my joints, but have had absolutely no pain until about a month after starting Levothyroxine. Changed to Synthroid and it didn't help. Joint is swollen and mishapen and is quite sore and achy. I am very careful not to bump it and try not to use that finger any more than I have to. I definitely feel that it was the Levo that started it all. I am also having a very difficult time losing weight on the meal plan that I usually lose on. Stomach and thigh areas seem larger.
From this study (1 day ago):
I had none of these symptoms before starting on these meds 4 to 5 yrs ago.
From this study (1 day ago):
Impulsiveness and noticeable personality changes during tx with Effexor. Did very irresponsible things very uncharacteristic of myself. Sx Stopped after tapering and d/c Effexor.
