Allergic to ALL thyroid meds-anyone else?

From: mskiba53 - 7 years 47 weeks ago

I have been diagnosed with hypo & Hoshimotos this past yr. Have not been well for 11 yrs. with all types of strange symptoms. All the time having more & more allegies to all sorts of things. There very fewmeds I can use. I have tried every type of hypothyroid med out there even a Natural Thyroid ( which put me in a coma state for a month-the following month I had to learn to eat stand & walk all over again) The smallest dose I break out in sore on my head tongue skin just peels of & I feel like im leaving this world.
Ijust wondered has anyone else had this problem-Drs really don't know what to do with me. Insurance doesn't cover Naturapthy. I am not a candidate for normal allergy testing either. That send me into anaphylactic episode I started having strange things take place after a Hysterechtomy yrs ago

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

Do you have an update? My girlfriend has just been diagnosed with Hoshimoto's and she is allergic to every medication.

Is this good advice?

I was also allergic to Levoxy and all thyroid meds except to Tirosint. Started this at very low dose and worked up to higher levels. I couldn't tolerate anything. I think I started at 5mcg of tyrosine am now at 75mcg.
