Levothyroxine Change

Has anyone changed to the Mercury Pharma Eltroxin since it has been back on the market, and if so, do they find it as good as the old Goldshield Eltroxin if they were on that. I and my son did very well on Goldshield and suffered terrible skin problems when changed to Mercury Pharma Generic Levothyroxine. My son eventually changed to Actavis, but with only a small difference to his skin,and I eventually changed to Aliud with a small improvement. I did think it might have been the Acacia Powder, but have been reading lately about Microcrystalline Cellulose not being much better for skin problems. Both these substances come from trees and appear to be coming through our skin as an exudant of glue. It is sore and reacts badly when soap is used.

I would be grateful if anybody can answer my query as I am now being asked to go back on Eltroxin.
