27 Sep 2012 have developed ecxema after taking levothyroxine after eleven years. It is not as itchy if I lower the dose for a day or two from 150 to 100.

08 Sep 2012 I have been taken this pill for only 12 days, but my symptoms have increased. I fell much worse. I have muscle pain in lower legs. I can't stand for long I feel like all the water or ...what in only on my legs, feels heavy although they don't look swollen...I'm not sure thou. And my appetite have increased enormously especially at night. I don't go to the toilet even if I drink lots of water, etc.

23 May 2012 I would love if there was a treatment regimen for this condition that did not require daily dosage. No two days in my life are the same and I sometimes have trouble remembering to take it on time.
