MA10, years ago I had a DAW for synthroid only. When that doctor retired, another MD put me on generic. I hadn't done well earlier on generic
But since it was cheaper and a pharm comany that I read is more reliable, I tried it and seemed to be ok. Now I'm wondering if dose varies and I always get 3 months so it's cheaper so if it's really a higher dose than the same that synthroid would be I'm stuck on it for 3 months.
My experience in the past with generic though, was that it was not strong enough..
I'm going to ask MD when I see her in January about going back on synthroid.
In the meantime I'm using some synthroid left over from 2 years ago still in my cupboard. That dose was too high back then. I'm taking half - .625 mcg of 125 mcg pill instead of the 100 mcg of levothyroxine I'm now prescribed..
I would rather feel tired than wired and anxious right now.
