I've seen quite a few posts from people claiming that T4 thyroid meds like Synthroid/Levo has given them bad acne?
One of my symptoms is acne but after two weeks on the Australian version of these T4 thyroid meds, my skin has gotten so much worse. Getting new pimples in places on my face that I never had before.
But my doctor says it's unlikely that the T4 meds is causing it (she's an integrative doctor, very open minded and believes in treating things through diet/lifestyle as well as medication, so I tend to take her advice seriously - and she was very good with picking up and diagnosing my thyroid problem to begin with).
Is there any connection between acne and these meds? I don't know why it's blown up like this. But if it continues to get bad I'd be tempted to change or stop this medication to see if it clears up. Any advice would be helpful! Thank you.
