In France health risk with modified treatment for Thyroide

Hi,

In France since March 2017, Merck labs have modified the ingredients of Levothyrox, a treatment given to patients with thyroide problems.

I have been given this new treatment and I am suffering from vertigo, change of humeur, tiredness etc;

There is a huge petition in France to get this drug changed back to its previous formula.

No one was informed about this change.

Its the biggest drug sold for over 1 million people in France.

Do you think that maybe yours could have been changed too in the UK?

Broo,

Levothyrox isn't used in the UK. A couple of members complained about the changes Merck made to Levothyrox at the weekend and this was posted:
