I am a 60 year old female in pretty good health. I had a lobectomy in Feb 09 and have ended up hypo.
My doc started me on .75 Synthroid two weeks ago. Samples from the office.
I seem to be doing ok on Synthroid, but I feel a little itchy at times.
When I filled the scrip for Synthroid they gave me Levothyroxine. I have been taking synthroid samples from the doc, but now I have this Levo.
Since it has only been two weeks should I go ahead and switch now? Or finish the month supply of Synthroid first? what would be the point of staying with the synthroid if my scrip is going to be Levothyroxine every month?
I know that Synthroid is Levothryoxine, but a lot people are freaking out about generics and how it changes from batch to batch. Frankly, my husband takes generics for bp, cholesterol, etc and he is fine.
I need some advice from anyone who takes L-thyroxine or who made this switch.
Thanks so much.
I would really like to take the generic since it is so much less in cost.
