Just thought I'd give a quick update. Having been fabulously fine on ERFA, my GP persuaded me to give levothyroxine one more go. So being the compliant patient that I am, I agreed. So.........4 days ago I was put on ELTROXIN.
4 days later I am now riddled with the foulest, burning sensation in my mouth. Dizzy, disorientated, panicky, anxious, burning sensation inside my gut from mouth to stomach. Funny head zaps, cant think straight, nausea, weakness. The burning sensation in my mouth is the worst because it isn't mild. It's major. As though I've swallowed a can of petrol.
I haven't taken anymore today and don't intend to take anymore in my entire life!!!!
I have also tried mercury pharma Levo and just through up constantly. Tried ACTAVIS and nearly passed out!
So my deduction is............is ain't for me!
I shall once, I'm feeling better return to the safety of ERFA thyroid and now that I have finally proved it once and for all with my GP, beg to have it prescribed on the NHS!
That's better........rant over!
