Just been prescribed Levothyroxine and I'm concerned with the possibility of having a thyroid crisis
Posted , 4 users are following.
I hope everyone has had a good day. Today I have been prescribed 40mg of Carbmizole and 75mg of Levothyroxine.
As I was diagnoised with hyperthyroidism then the side effects, I believe, will be easy to spot. However, I am anxious about taking them due to the chance that they could cause me to have a thyroid crisis, which could result in some serious implications such as a coma or worse.
This has caused me to be scared about taking the medication.
Could anyone shed their knowledge on weather this reaction would happen instantly or any re-assurance that if I take these tablet that I am not going to drop dead tomorrow.
I believe I am most likely being over;ly-anxious and may seem like a 'drama queen' but well, its the fear of the unknown.
