Anyone else feel nauseated from Levothyroxine? I've been taking it for 5 days and my stomach feels so sick. Does it go away?

How much are you taking, Corinne,44?

I take 25 mcg. daily and have never had nausea. I take it first thing
in the morning before eating breakfast. Sometimes, taking meds after
eating is better for others.

We all react differently; you just need to find the right time to take it,
in my view. And it is important that you take that med.

Good wishes,

I have never had any nausea from my levo. Looking at my pill bottle, it does say to take on an empty stomach and to avoid dairy products. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

I think the nausea might have been from my sinuses draining. I'm feeling better.

The 1st day I took mine (thanksgiving day) I had a horrid headache all day and an episode of major vomiting. Next day headache. Doc told me to take 3 days off, then start with 1/2 a pill (12.5mcg) at 1/2, I seem to be ok.
