I have taken thyroid tabs for 35 years or more years with out

Customer Question

I have taken thyroid tabs for 35 years or more years with out any problems until 5 or 6 years ago when the suppliers were changed, and since then I have had a rash,itchy skin,itchy and blurry eyes,hot sweats etc. I have taken eltroxine levothyroxine and synthroid and all have had the same effect. I was given zetop allergy tabs to take with them which relieved the itch and eliminated the rash but haven't helped the other problems and I feel sure they are affecting my eyesight. At the moment I have stopped taking my levothyroxine tabs to relieve the side effects but expect I will have to continue taking them again soon but am not looking forward to it
