You really should be on name brand only. Even my endo, who I disagreed with on several other points, agrees with that. With thyroid problems consistency is the key & generics are very inconsistent from batch to batch plus you may even have several pills from different batches in one bottle (the pharmacist can mix batches) which means each pill in your bottle could have a slightly different level of thyroid hormone in it. That's why you want to stick with name brands only... there aren't as many inconsistencies from one manufacturer as there would be if you had 5 pills from company x, 10 from company y, & so on. Am I making sense? Here's another resource on that particular point... Diagnosis: Hypothyroidism -- Six Questions to Ask Your Doctor / Answers to Some Common Questions
Are they monitoring your Free T3 & Free T4 along with your TSH? I'm asking b/c I was still having a few symptoms when I finally found a dr who was willing to test my Free T3 & learned it was low. We added some supplemental T3 & my symptoms quit. Could that be what is happening with you???
