Synthroid Side Effects EXPLAINED (Including Hair Loss, Weight Gain, Depression & More)

The complete list of Synthroid side effects including hair loss, weight gain, depression, racing heart, palpitations, and MORE.

Synthroid is a name brand thyroid medication and frequently used to treat low thyroid function of ANY cause.

It’s not the same as levothyroxine but it is VERY similar.

Unfortunately, Synthroid, like any medication, carries with it the potential for many different side effects.

And today we are going to dig into the side effects associated with this medication.

What may surprise you is that Synthroid is unlike other medications in that it can cause side effects for several different reasons.

Reason #1. Due to the medication itself OR the binders/fillers/dyes found inside of it.

Reason #2. Side effects because you are not taking ENOUGH.

Reason #3. Side effects because you are taking TOO MUCH.

Learn how to differentiate between these side effects to know whether you need to switch medications entirely or if all you need to do is adjust your dose.

  1. Somewhere I read specifically that Synthroid (for treating Hashimoto) ca cause, as a side effect, neuropathy after many years of treatment. I am searching for this information.
    I am aware of articles that say Synthroid can help neuropathy – however the above point is what I am searching for.
    Any information on the above would be so helpful

    • Hi Sloan,

      I don’t believe I’ve ever seen information that suggests that Synthroid CAUSES neuropathy. I’ve seen information that suggests it can help reduce it but not cause it.
