Synthroid Testimonials

Synthroid Reviews :

Very important take sythroid the same time each day... by minute on the clock....not taking (skipping) or taking even 1 hr late....I become constipated and notice the change. Watch that clock & take on time! Sythroid since: 7/18 /00. David.

I have been taking synthroid for 10 years and I have had no issues that I know of from it. It appears to be working for me and as long as I know it keeps me at the right levels I will keep on taking it! Emma.

I actually was able to regulate on the generic. My doctor normally will not let his patients use the generic but since my numbers came down and goiter began to shrink within the 2nd month, he said okay. Luckily neither are expensive. I fought him on having to start a daily med. Now all I can say is- I wish I would have started taking it sooner. I feel much better!! Daniel. Emily.

Have taken this for over 21 years. It's been so long that I can't recall the fatigue I used to feel, I dropped about 25 pounds after starting on the Synthroid all those years ago and it has helped me maintain my weight within the same 5 or so pounds all these years, when prior to that I tried and tried to loose weight but couldn't get it to budge. It must have revved up my metabolism. Isabella.

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and was given radioactive iodine. The purpose of this Radioactive iodine is to take you to hypothyroidism. After waiting several months, i began noticing that my hair was falling out so much that it was scary and i felt so tired. These symptoms were nothing compared to those i had while i was hyperthyroid. I had blood tests and was now diagnosed with hypothyroidism. My doctor gave me synthroid. It took a while to get the right dose. I am so satisfied with the results that i can tell you i feel MYSELF again. Goodbye depression. Ava.

Levothyroxin the generic version is what I'm on. It put my thyroid in balance. By time I got to the doctor to get checked out my tsh was 11.93. Within a month on this drug it is at 3.5. James.

I've been taking this medication for 30 years after my thyroid removal and it is great. I take a pill every morning and I feel good all day. Bill.

Thyroid problems

Thyroid gland a gland of the organism located in the front part of the neck. The whole gland weights 25-30g. It works by producing 4 hormones amongst which the major are T4 Thyroxin and T3 Tri-iodothyronine. Also the gland produces Calcitonin a biologically active substance that regulates the Ca2+ metabolism in the body.

The thyroid gland, pituitary gland and hypothalamus work as one regulatory system. There are different types of thyroid gland dysfunctions for example:

  • Hypothyroidism A dysfunction which manifests in decreased production or inability to produce thyroid hormones. All the metabolism processes in the organism are slowed down. The causes of the disorder might be autoimmune thyroiditis, therapy with radioactive Iodine, hereditary disorders.
  • Hyperthyroid an excess in production of thyroid hormones. The disorder leads to an increase in the organisms metabolism speed. The causes of the disorder might be: benign tumors, when the gland is not controlled by the pituitary gland, autoimmune processes Graves's disease. The symptoms of the hyperfunction may lead to thyrotoxic crisis or thyroid storm a severe condition which affects the main organism functions and in turn may leading to coma and death.
  • Another dysfunction of the thyroid gland is goiter which is caused by iodine insufficiency, followed by an increase in size of the thyroid gland which may lead to hyper- or hypothyroidism.

If you feel that some of the following may be applied to youthen a possibility of the thyroid disorder exists:

  • Fatigue, especially in the morning and less in the evening
  • Changes in weight, especially around the abdomen
  • Depression and melancholy
  • Increased levels of cholesterol
  • Spasms and muscle contractions
  • Constipation
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Bad memory and other neurological

All of the above may signal a possible thyroid disorder. It would be safe to consult your doctor and measure the levels of the T4 and T3 hormones in the blood.
