Please give me some information on thyroid medication. I have used the drug most commonly prescribed for the thyroid which is Synthroid and have recently been prescribed Liothyronine. I was having side effects with the Synthroid such as shortness of breath etc. and now am having side effects from the Liothyronine such as muscle cramps and pain in my legs. Is there a drug you can take for the thyroid that I do not know about. My physician advises me that without taking medication I am putting myself in a dangerous position. I have enough to deal with in all the side effects that radiation and chemo has left me with such as swallowing, dry mouth, tooth decay and all the others that most of you know about. Any advice is appreciated.
