Hi everyone, I have searched the site for a post that could shed some light on what to expect if I were to switch from Synthroid ( 9 years) to a generic. I apologize if I have somehow missed it.
To make a long story short, I feel I should switch to a generic because I will be approaching medicare age and at $208 for a 90 day supply of Synthroid, I just do not see how this will work. Even now with decent insurance, I still pay nearly full price to get my meds.
The TT 9 years ago, did give my body some relief, but I must have retained some thyroid tissue. I paid cash for an antibody lab, and it was elevated. Synthroid has not been a magic potion, so, I don't look forward to going through the turmoil that a different medication might cause.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
