  • I'm new to all this, but have recently read that B2 or B6 400 mg daily can stop headaches.  Google migraine.com/migraine-treat...  Another site suggests B6.

  • It's the levthyroxine ,I never have headaches in the past , it now I'm back on this that's causing  them ,

  • Maggiemay12,

    Have you tried taking NDT and topping the NDT up with a little Levothyroxine?

  • I had headaches (and achy m)uscles with levothyroxine too.  I now take liothyronine and refuse to take levothyroxine.

  • I have the same thing even nose bleeds

  • I get terrible migraines when I increase dosage or a few days after I forget a dose. Once I forgot to take them two days in a row and a few days after getting back on schedule I got the worst migraine ever. Taking 150mcg Tirosint because I had an allergic reaction (rash) to the inactive ingredients of generics.
