I’ve never come across anyone who gets side effects from Thyroxine. What were they / are they? If you don’t mind my asking.
I always tell people that thyroxine is a good drug, that it corrects underactivity and has no adverse effects. If I’m wrong, then I’ll have to stop saying that.
I’ve been taking it for 25 years and the dose has gone up and down from time to time (from 50 mcg to 150 mag at different times, currently on 100mcg). The drugs for an overactive thyroid are much worse, I took about three different ones and it took years to get to a state of 'normal’ish thyroid levels with normalish thyroid stimulating hormone. Throughout having an overactive thyroid I had palpitations, the shakes, was edgy and nervous, got out of breath going up stairs and was really quite ill. That’s why I had mine fixed surgically 28 years ago. The side effect from which was underactive thyroid within 2 years. But it was so much easier to manage.
I’ve also found that weight gain was a problem for me with an uncorrected overactive thyroid. I was unusual as people normally lose weight with an over and gain weight with an underactive thyroid.
