Comment:
Synthroid is made with BROWN DYE which does not agree with me-why do they have to add dye to pills? I normally was on Armour thyroid but all of a sudden in January I got hives from the Armour-so I changed medicines.

Been on medicine for 5 years. First, I went from 168 to 230lbs. Eyes blurred and pressure on right eye. Recently up to a higher dosage that makes me blur minded and as someone stated makes you feel like one is speaking to someone behind a 6" glass. Looking for someone who will be willing to prescribe Armour.

Comment:
The not satisfied comes from the fact that Synthroid is a BONE DESTRUCTION...DENSITY causing drug. Right dose of Synthroid works as Name Brand well to control Hypothyroidism, it is the Bone Density DRUG INDUCED OP that is the problem. NO WARNINGS WERE ISSUED IN 30 yrs.
