Possible Synthroid Side Effects

Like all levothyroxine products, Synthroid can have side effects. Synthroid side effects may be caused by under-replacement (too little of the active ingredient levothyroxine) or over-replacement (too much levothyroxine). If you are not getting enough levothyroxine, you may continue to experience hypothyroidism symptoms. If you are getting too much levothyroxine, you'll experience hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) symptoms. Notify your doctor if you experience any of the symptoms on this page. It may be helpful to use a treatment tracker to record when you experience symptoms, and whether or not they are still occurring.

Partial hair loss may occur rarely during the first few months of Synthroid therapy, but this is usually temporary.

Side effects* of over-replacement can include:

  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Chest pain or shortness of breath
  • Muscle weakness
  • Nervousness
  • Irritability
  • Sleeplessness
  • Tremors
  • Change in appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Frequent bowel movements
  • Excessive sweating
  • Heat intolerance
  • Fever
  • Impaired fertility
  • Decreased bone density
  • Changes in menstrual periods
  • Other unusual medical events

* This is not a complete list of Synthroid side effects.

If you are currently taking prescription medication for your symptoms and are interested in building more health and perhaps getting off your medication by addressing the cause of your health concern, please call the office and let us discuss your options.  I will work with your medical doctor to restore your health and reduce or eliminate the need for medication.

Dr. Huntoon has a single mission:

To support as many people as possible in their quest for health and enable them to improve and maintain their health to the highest level possible, while educating them about the benefits of Chiropractic, Natural Healthcare and Holistic Living, so they in turn can teach others to support us having a healthy community.

Your Choice

Health concerns are a major source of lost happiness and lost joy in all of our lives. Finding a solution that is agreeable and enables you to get back to your life is important. Please appreciate that you always have the more invasive surgery and prescription medication available to you as a last resort. What many Traditional Medical Doctors may not share is, many times, once you begin that journey into medication and/or surgery, it alters your original body from the one that you were born with. Unfortunately, at that time, more conservative and natural treatments may no longer be viable. I encourage you to consider that before making any decisions about treatment for your health. As always I am here to help. 
Your Choice:
  • Continue doing the same thing and nothing changes or it may get worse


  • Try something different and get a different result that makes you happier and healthier.
The Choice is Yours
Please call Dr. Huntoon at 845-561-BACK (2225) to discuss your options or click on our E-Visit to do it via e-mail. 
Thank You for your consideration.
