Is there a link between Bipolar disorder and the medecine Unithroid/Synthroid?

From my understanding, the link isnt in the disease, but the meds you take. I take Lithium for my bipolar disorder and it effects my Thyroid glands. As a result I take Synthroid to keep it all balanced. Hope this helps.... Good Luck ..... GMM Answered by Jacquiline Corless 6 months ago.
the answer to the question isn't so undemanding as one may imagine, and really the adaptation is debated continuously by using psychiatrists themselves. neither is brought about entirely by using genetics or existence activities. Borderline is a "personality affliction," which signifies that that is a wide maladjustment impacting each part of someone's' existence, and lasting for an finished life. Bipolar is considered an "ailment," that signifies that it separates the guy from who they are surely. Borderline people in many situations have very reactive moods. Manic and depressive episodes are non everlasting, and after an episode the guy returns to their usual state. someone "is" borderline, yet they "have" bipolar affliction. yet there are a tremendous kind of similarities interior the indications exhibited, and a tremendous kind of folk have surely said that borderline personality affliction is a few version of an emotional affliction. The time period "borderline" initially meant that the guy changed into continuously on the fence between neurosis and psychosis.

About 7 weeks ago I started getting tingling in the left side of my face, chest tightness/pain, even worse fatigue than before, brain fog, and weight loss. I went to the doctor and had them check my thyroid the results showed my TSH was 3.07 i asked the doctor to increase the dosage because of how poorly i was feeling. She agreed and im now on 75mg of unithroid. I went in just this past week to have my levels retested and the results were Free T3 3.2, range 2.0 - 4.4 Free T4 1.93, range 0.82 - 1.77 TSH 2.64, range 0.45 - -4.50 My TSH hardly moved but my free T4 is now elevated. I still don't feel 100% with brain fog, fatigue, chest tightness, and dry eyes but i dont really understand what my results are telling me. Isnt a high T4 hyperthyroid? how could this happen without causing my T3 to be out of range? Anything is helpful! Thanks Answered by Jonah Kliment 6 months ago.
Still need some time on the new dosage. Be sure you take your thyroid on an EMPTY stomach daily. It is normal to have to have dosage adjustments. Expect your lab results will straighten out in a short period of time. I wouldn't be too concerned about the one abnormal result until you are thoroughly stabilized on the new dose.

There are other generics you can try as well, perhaps Unithroid. I know a lot of people who have had good luck with that. You also could try a natural thyroid medication like Armour or Naturethroid.

What kind of medication are you prescribed to treat hypothyroidism and what are the side effects?
Asked by Dorotha Snowball 6 months ago.
Doctors would prescribe synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine (Levothroid, Levoxyl, Synthroid, Unithroid). The medication restores hormone levels and will have you feeling less tired/fatigued pretty quickly. The possible side effects of these medications are: headache, sleep problems, nervous or irritable feeling, fever, hot flashes, sweating, changes in your menstrual periods, appetite changes, weight changes (usually weight LOSS). I know plenty of patients that have zero side effects and are very happy to have their energy restored. I'm not saying you won't have any side effects, but thyroid medications are generally well-tolerated by most patients. Best of luck to you, take care! Answered by Leonila Fahnestock 6 months ago.
There are many different thyroid medications. Some are T4, some are T3, and some are both. I have tried T4, T4 with T3, and finally a T4/T3 combo that is natural. I feel better on the natural medication (Armour) I have been on it for 4 years now and I feel great. There are usually no side effects with thyroid meds when you are on the correct dosage, though I have heard of some people having more hairloss with Synthroid but that depends on the person. Symptoms of too much medication would be diarrhea, fast heart rate, nervousness, anxiety, and weight loss. You usually get tested every 6 to 8 weeks until you find your best dosage. Just remember to always test in the morning, especially if you are only having a TSH test. Some thyroid links below Answered by Blondell Thaller 6 months ago.
Hypothyroidism is treated with a synthentic thyroid hormone, typically Synthroid or Levothroid (generic name is levothyroxine) you will most likely take 1 pill a day. Your doctor will need to do blood tests to determine the strength of the pill you need, it will typically range from 25 mg to 200 mg. You will need to have regular bood tests to ensure that you are taking the correct amount. What are the possible side effects of levothyroxine? Stop using levothyroxine and get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: headache; sleep problems (insomnia); nervous or irritable feeling; fever, hot flashes, sweating; changes in your menstrual periods; appetite changes, weight changes; Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. You may experience mild hair loss. Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome. What other drugs will affect levothyroxine? The following drugs may cause medical problems if you use them with levothyroxine: lithium, amiodarone, or antidepressants. Tell your doctor if you have recently received radiation therapy with iodine (such as I-131). There are many other drugs not listed that can affect levothyroxine. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor. Certain medicines can be continued, but they may make levothyroxine less effective if taken at the same time. If you use any of the following drugs, use them at least 4 hours before or 4 hours after you take levothyroxine: calcium carbonate (Caltrate, Citracal, Oystercal, and others); ferrous sulfate iron supplement; sucralfate (Carafate); sodium polystyrene sulfonate (Kayexalate, Kionex, and others); antacids that contain aluminum (Amphojel, Gaviscon, Maalox, Mylanta, Riopan, Rulox, Tums, and others); and cholesterol-lowering drugs cholestyramine (Questran) and colestipol (Colestid).

Chronic depression took years to get as low as you've become. Chemically that is true also. Once you and your Dr discover which medication will "work" for you, you must take it every single day. My Dr told me to figure it will take as long to come out of the depression as it did for me to sink so low. I'm not sure if that is true or not. I will say this. Each year I have been on the antidepressants people around me comment that I am doing more than I had, that I have had my emotions return, people want to be around me now, I have less of a problem with eating and sleeping. My anger is gone. I'm not worried or anxious anymore. I have become secure in the person that I am. I can speak full sentences that make sense now. Sadness no longer shapes my days and my life. I am calm and in a good mood everyday now. I don't have to push extra hard just to make it through a day. I can now help others who have bigger problems, and they look to me as friend who genuinely cares. The medications have been working in my body for the past 16 years with continual small improvements. A counselor came up to me one day a few years back with this comment ; "You are improving so well, you're no longer disabled" I was taken aback. She was right. Ever since I've seen myself in a whole new light. - And I continue every day to take my antidepressants. The Dr explained that the extreme traumas I lived through actually changed the shape of my brain and made it so I will always need the antidepressants in order to function. That's OK with me. I've finally reached what most other people call "normal". I found my laugh and smile and song along the way.

I take a med called levoxyl. When I first started taking it, I lost about ten pounds and seemed to have a bit more energy. Now that I have been on it for as many years as I have, I don't notice any affects from it at all. However, I am told that when diagnosed w/hypothyroidism, you probably will need to be on the meds for the rest of your life. Hope I helped you Answered by Sena Hirschman 6 months ago.
Well, there are differnt causes for the condition, so I only know about the actual thyroid as the problem. (I now have it, after having hyPERthyroidism for ten years, unknown.) Basically, you take a synthetic form of the thyroid hormones. The hormones stimulate your whole body, and affect your metabolism as they do it. So, you're more alert, can eat more and still lose a little weight if you're active, and stop feeling so slow and blue. Good luck to you or whoever you're asking for!

Hypothyroidism is the disease state in humans and animals caused by insufficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. Treatment A doctor can perform a blood test to see if a patient suffers from hypothyroidism. A synthetic thyroid supplement can be prescribed, which the patient must take daily to replace the missing hormone. The American Thyroid Association cautions against taking herbal remedies, and warns that taking too much iodine can actually worsen both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Patients with psychiatric symptoms (mood or psychosis) and physical symptoms of hypothyroidism, with subclinical hypothyroidism (normal TSH but low free T3) are often treated with thyroid supplement to bring the free T3 levels into the upper range of normal. Patients with hypothyroidism should have a diet high in fiber and high cellulose foods to prevent costipation; exercise frequently; avoid narcotic sedatives (because of sensitivity to narcotics; barbiturates and anasthetics) and keep warm (patients are not tolerant of cold weather). Diagnostic testing To diagnose primary hypothyroidism, many doctors simply measure the amount of Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) being produced. High levels of TSH indicate that the thyroid is not producing sufficient levels of Thyroid hormone (mainly as thyroxine (T4) and smaller amounts of triiodothyronine (fT3)). However, measuring just TSH fails to diagnose secondary and tertiary forms of hypothyroidism, thus leading to the following suggested minimum blood testing: thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) free triiodothyronine (fT3) free levothyroxine (fT4) total T3 total T4 Additionally, the following measurements may be needed: antithyroid antibodies - for evidence of autoimmune diseases that may be damaging the thyroid gland serum cholesterol - which may be elevated in hypothyroidism prolactin - as a widely available test of pituitary function Answered by Nery Stankovich 6 months ago.
Standard treatment for an underactive thyroid involves daily use of the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine (Levothroid, Levoxyl, Synthroid, Unithroid). The oral medication restores adequate hormone levels, shifting your body back into normal gear. What side effects may I notice from taking levothyroxine? Side effects that you should report to your prescriber or health care professional as soon as possible: •difficulty breathing, wheezing, or shortness of breath •chest pain •excessive sweating or intolerance to heat •fast or irregular heartbeat or pulse rate •nervousness •skin rash or hives •swelling of ankles, feet or legs Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your prescriber or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome): •changes in appetite •changes in menstrual periods •diarrhea •fever •hair loss •headache •irritability •leg cramps •nausea, vomiting •tremors •trouble sleeping •weight loss Click on the links below to learn more about the illness and the drug respectively.

Sinthroid is given for thyroid problems like hypothyroidism but for years the word was that the (cheaper) generics didn't work exactly the same in the body. They were broken down slightly differently but in a way that could make a big difference to the user. My friend's doc insists on brand name Sinthroid only, not on using generics. Has this ever gotten settled? And if there is a difference, how can the FDA okay the substitution of the generic for sinthroid? Lots of people use the generics. What's the real scoop on this? Answered by Darcie Elting 6 months ago.
Certain thyroid meds are equivalent to others, but not all the generics are equivalent to all the brands, and all the brands aren't equivalent to each other. Thats what makes it so complex. For example, you have two brands - Synthroid and Unithroid. They may be equivalent to each other, but the respective manufacturers never did any testing to prove it. So, now a generic company wants to make a generic version - they need a brand to compare to - so they pick one. Say they pick Synthroid. They do their studies, and get approval. Now, they are only equivalent to Synthroid. Its not that they aren't equivalent to Unithroid - we just don't know because no testing was ever done. Multiply that by 4 brands, and you can see the complexity. Another issues is this - to be considered equivalent, the generic has to be within a certain percentage of the brand in terms of blood absorption. Any generic, when tested in the body, could either be exactly the same, above or below the brand. Lets say that generic A tests slightly below the brand, and generic B test slightly above the brand. Both A and B are equivalent to the brand, but would they be equivalent to each other? Maybe, maybe not. Another thinng to consider is this - every batch of the brand is not the same as every other batch. There are allowed to be manufacturing variations. For example, a batch of Synthroid, 100 mcg, can contain anywhere from 95 - 105 mcg. What if the generic picked one of the lots that was on the low side to compare to, and what if they were slightly lower. They would still be equivalent to that batch, but are they equivalent overall? These situations aren't unique to thyroid meds. What is unique is this - thyroid medications belong to a very small class of drugs which are known to have a narrow therapeutic range. A very small change in potency could make a large change in efficacy. For most drugs, minor differnces described in the previous paragraphs would have no effect, but for a thyroid med, there could be an effect. Add this to the fact that you were presumably "titrated" to get your optimum dose. That is, the doctor made an educated guess on how much you needed based on a number of factors - blood test results being a key factor. Then, you went back and were tested, and maybe the dose was tweaked, and you repeated until all your blood levels were acceptable. If you switched toa different brand or generic, you would need ot get tested again, because of the minor differences noted above. The actual drug works exactly the same, and is absorbed exactly the same. But, there are a lot of other variables to take into consideration. The bottom line is, is the savings worth the hassle of getting retitrated, and then having to make sure you get the same generic each time. But, if you make the decision, rest assured that once you get titrated on the specific generic, you will be getting the proper amount of drug each time. Answered by Kathryn Simokat 6 months ago.
I know many people on Unithroid (considered a generic) that are doing well on it. Some do better on the thyroid brand name and others do better on the generic. Just whatever med you start on don't switch suddenly, as each med has to be adsjusted by blood work each time you make a change. I'm on Armour thyroid, which is a brand name, however its a natural med containing T4 and T3 while Synthroid is only T4. I found it works better than T4 alone. I used to be on Levoxyl years ago, but it did nothing for my symptoms. Answered by Dominga Vadasy 6 months ago.
Salicylic acid is the generic name for aspirin. Many companies put their name on the bottle that sells salicylic acid. Is Bayer's salicylic acid ( 500 mg ) any different from Target's saliclyclic acid ( 500 mg )? All meds have a generic name. This is the name that a medication is at the time of its creation. When Bayer decided that it was going to sell salicylic acid they did not request that the formula be changed to enhance their name. The formula is the same which is why the name is the same. If you pick up a bottle of synthroid, look carefully and you should find the generic name for it as well. Answered by Daron Hautamaki 6 months ago.
Generics may be absorbed differently in the body and therefore require a different dose. 1 out of 3 of my endocrinologists were against using generic version. If you do use a generic make sure you use the same generic each month. Here is what I found on American Thyroid Association website. Synthroid®, Levoxyl®, Levothyroid®, and Unithroid® are the brand-name forms of thyroxine currently marketed in the U.S. In addition, there are several different generic versions of thyroxine on the U.S. market. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers most of these preparations to be equivalent to each other. Therefore, in most cases your pharmacist is permitted to give you a generic thyroxine product instead of a brand-name product, unless your prescription specifies “no substitutions.” Most endocrinologists believe that the FDA’s methods for testing the equivalence of thyroxine preparations are seriously flawed. Thyroid disease often requires lifelong therapy and is best managed with consistent and precise treatment with the same brand of thyroid hormone. Your doctor may change your dose of thyroid hormone, but the brand of your thyroid hormone medication should be constant. When you go to the pharmacy, do not change the brand of your thyroid medication without checking with your doctor. You should not change from one brand of thyroid medication to another, from your brand of thyroid medication to a generic product, or from one generic product to another without first checking with your doctor.

No it shouldn't be a problem. I've checked on drug interaction web sites and whether you take Synthroid, Levothyroxine, Levoxyl, Levothroid, Unithroid, Armour Thyroid, Nature-Throid, or Wes-Throid, none of these should have a negative interaction with any type of ginseng. I've also checked for American Ginseng and Panax Ginseng. Are you taking Ginseng for energy? Are you on one of these: Synthroid, Levothyroxine, Levoxyl, Levothroid, Unithroid ? If so, you might want to look into having your doctor prescribe Armour Thyroid, Nature-Throid, or Wes-Throid. I've been on all the thyroid medications for over 55 years and by far Armour Thyroid, Nature-Throid, or Wes-Throid are the best to make you feel more energetic. I did not do well on Synthroid, Levothyroxine, Levoxyl, Levothroid and Unithroid. Right now there is a nationwide shortage of Armour Thyroid so my doctor has me on Nature-Throid and if my pharmacy runs out of it they put me on Wes-Throid. I'm doing very well on these.

Whenever I seem to take my meds I can barely move physically (and which stinks not taking it bc I walk in circles) but I rather walk in circles than not walk at all at this point! My psoriasis flares up when I use my adderall as well as my joints severely inflame! So , try to taper down and after a week being off it u should see lots of improvements ! I do know I react (not saying u all are the same but it can't hurt to do a test ) There's not enough info on the topic for doctors to say if it does or doesn't. But I know my body and I know what it's reacting from. Lots of luck Answered by Mariko Kollar 6 months ago.

When will my food drug reaction for Levoxyl wear off?
I've mistakenly been eating foods that have interacted with my thyroid medicine for the past 2 weeks. I've experienced fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, and depression/anger. Now that I've figured out what the problem is, I'm wondering how long it will take to get back to normal? I felt great before...

I wish you had shown what those foods are....... I would like to know. Now if you mean the goitrogens, they interfere w/ the thyroid function itself. You should not take Calcium or Iron at the same time (of the thyroid meds) but wait 3 or 4 hrs for those. Also, thyroid meds should be 1st thing, on empty stomach, then wait 1 hr before eating.

Drug-induced psychosis is caused by the drugs, or the withdrawal. After these things end, the psychosis will most likely end as well. Schizophrenia that presents itself after drug use is not CAUSED by the drugs, it was just a trigger that led to the schizophrenia becoming active. Stress, illness, or trauma can also cause a first episode of schizophrenia. When the drug use ceases, the schizophrenia will continue. Answered by Verla Mihalak 6 months ago.
