Comment:
I have been on this medication for nearly 40 years, but 10 years ago I developed A-Fib which I believe is directly attributed to taking too much of the medicine. I am going to quit taking this as of now! I caution anyone to please watch your blood work and if it's too high, get off the meds quickly. It makes me itch and my hair breaks off. Also please be careful if you are dieting because ... Show Full Comment

WARNING: This medication contains gluten! I also have RA, and every time I've been put on Synthroid (usually when a thyroid drug I was taking was discontinued) I've had RA flare-ups. My insurance put me on Synthroid when Levoxyl was discontinued. I called my doctor after experiencing severe pain and arthritis symptoms. She told me Synthroid is her least favorite drug, because it's ... Show Full Comment
