have been told by Medco/Express Scripts it will not be available until 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2014. they were told some of the medication had an odd odor and it was pulled from teh market - no one has it anymore and most docs are switching to Unithroid or Synthoid for those not allergic.

I cannot take generic. Levoxyl has been recalled and I am concerned about what I will do? Anybody know any place that may still have? (Colorado area).

When 1st starting the drug it was very hard to adjust to. I had major body & extremity pains, cotton mouth, thrash of the tongue, blurred vision, spinal pains, dry skin, rashes/dry patches, & not to mention the pains in my brain (not headaches or migrains) that never went away. After 4months or so most of the symptoms went away except the brain pains

Unable to find Levoxyl at any paharmacy! What is everyone doing now that this drug has been removed from the market? Generic is very different, had many negative side effects. Express Scripts says will be back 2014, doesn't help the patient that has been on this drug for years!!
