Synthroid (levothyroxine) is a moderately priced drug used to treat hypothyroidism. It also treats an enlarged thyroid gland and thyroid cancer. This drug is slightly less popular than comparable drugs. There several brand and generic versions of levothyroxine available, but they are not interchangeable. Synthroid is covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but manufacturer and pharmacy may be lower. The lowest GoodRx price for the most common version of levothyroxine is around $4.00, 75% off the average retail price of $16.41. Compare thyroxines.

Dr. Sharon Orrange -

My hands are shaking. Is it Parkinson’s? Something else? Shakiness, or tremors, is a common problem that brings patients to my office. If you start having shaky hands, you may worry that you have Parkinson’s disease, but many other things can cause tremors—like medications. The good news is, drug-induced tremors go away with lower doses or if you stop taking the medication.

There’s a Nationwide Shortage of Levothyroxine. This is Why

Tori Marsh
Tori Marsh -

One of the most popular drugs in the country, levothyroxine – also known as the brand name Synthroid – is in short supply, making prices higher and even leaving some patients without the drug. The shortage is a result of hurricanes Irma and Maria, which hit Puerto Rico nearly four months ago, and knocked out manufacturing facilities for many drugs and medical supplies, including levothyroxine.

Walmart, for instance, has more than doubled their cash prices for levothyroxine. See More

Katie Mui
Katie Mui -

Why is Synthroid (levothyroxine), a medication that treats thyroid hormone deficiencies—or hypothyroidism, as it’s called—the number one drug in terms of the number of prescriptions written by physicians? 

It’s easy to understand why atorvastatin would be on the list. For years, widespread marketing has flooded with TV commercials and website ads for statins as a means (after changes in diet and exercise) to treat high cholesterol. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Most diarrhea will resolve within 24 to 48 hours—if it’s caused by viral gastroenteritis (a stomach bug) or food borne illness. If your diarrhea is hanging on and not resolving, take a look at your medications. It can be challenging to identify which medication may be causing drug-induced diarrhea, especially if you’re taking multiple medications. Here are some well-known offenders commonly associated with drug-induced diarrhea. See More

What Can You Do If Your Antidepressant Isn’t Helping?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

If you have depression that hasn’t responded to a single antidepressant, switching to another one or adding a second medication is your next step. New evidence is guiding what to do next if you aren’t much better after 6 – 12 weeks of treatment.

When your antidepressant isn’t working to improve or relieve your depressive symptoms, what’s your next step?

  • Don’t stop and switch. In adults with mild to moderate depression, augment (add to) your initial antidepressant with a second drug and/or psychotherapy rather than stopping and switching antidepressants.
