Can anyone explain the article on page 8 "What's going on with our thyroid meds?" At the end of the article is a section on Anhydrous Levothyroxine Sodium "without water" and the article goes on to say it is possible that using this form can affect its stability. I am on 75 mcg 25 & 50 both by different manufacturer's the 25mcg is from MercuryPharma the 50mcg from Almus. Both meds have anhydrous levothyroxine sodium. There is a paragraph which unless you were medically trained would not understand, "For solid oral dosage forms, a growing body of evidence links the physical form and hydration state of the drug substance to its subsequent stability. Particularly once formulated, levothyroxine has a complex stabilty profile and has been reported to be sensitive to some common excipients, light, temperature, moisture, PH and environmental oxygen". This to me states that the body isn't absorbing all of the levothyroxine, can anyone explain this to me, and if anything what do I do.....Yes I have symptoms I wish I didn't have, but dont we all, we just get on with it, unless it really affects day to day life. Any help on this would be appreciated.
