chest pain since taking synthroid. not at first with dosage of 25 or 50. But with 75 yes.
From this study (2 years ago):
I am experiencing periodic chest pain, and am wondering if it is being caused by Alphagan. I have been using Alphagan for about a year in one eye, but soon after I started using it in both eye, I started to feel the chest pain. I am a healthy person who works out regularly. The chest pain only happens when I am at rest, not during exercise.
