The only thyroid medication that I can take here in Canada is dessicated thyroid extract and even tho' I am vegetarian I have to make an allowance for that because non of the synthetics work for me. Years and years ago I was on the pill for awhile and the dr never told me that they might not work . In my case I always take my thyroid in the middle of the night when I wake up to pee. LOL that way I do not always have to be worried about thyroid and calciumemoticon Joni

I am following Dr Esselstyn's book to Reverse Heart Disease.
My goal is to get one pound slimmer every week until I reach 140, and then stay there forever, healthy.


I notice that my weight always comes up as Kg but believe me, I never weighed 210 Kg LOL It should be reading pounds (that is what my scale says), and I cannot seem to change it so wanted you to know. LOL

hey Nydia!

Welcome to the team!
I can only echo what Jane and Purrs said and add that if you do decide to go on the Pill, take your Pill on the opposite end of the day that you take your Synthroid as sometimes the hormones in the Pill will interfere with the absorption of thyroid hormone.

Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.

Yes, generic is not good in this case because they have different binders or differing amounts of thyroid in the pills based on different manufacturers. If the doc wanted name brand only he should have written or checkmarked DAW on the script. (dispense as written).

Since thyroid is responsible for all metabolism on the body is does have an effect on fertility!

Your doctor wants you on the name brand because the generic is not consistent depending where the pharmacy gets the generic the amount may not be consistent. Many meds it makes no difference but thyroid medicine is different.

I wish you well.

Hello :)

I was recently diagnosed with an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism). My doc insisted that I take the name brand Synthroid and NOT the generic. "Generic is great but not in this case"s e said. My pharmacist didn't even ask and filled my prescription with generic and so I asked him to change it to Synthroid as my doc suggested. I will be taking 75 mcg every morning and I hope it will make me feel better and make it easier to lose the weight.

I'm a little confused that my doc said it would make me more fertile! (0.o) I was on the calendar method also known as the rhythm method but now I'm worried and will go on the pill!

"I shall shape my future.

Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze.

My choice. My responsbility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."
