From Chicago, Illinois, USA:

My daughter was changed from Synthroid to the generic levothroxine. Her blood sugars are all over the place. Could the change have any effect?


The medicines are supposed to be the same, but I sometimes need to change the dose just a bit when I go from one to the other. I suggest you get her levels checked.
