I’ve been taking levothyroxine daily since my full thyroidectomy in 2009. I’ve developed itchy sores on my lower legs over the past few years. Could it be a side effect of the meds?

      Yes I’ve experienced itchy sores on my legs but it eventually went away! I’ve been taking Levothyroxine 20 years now.

      I’ve been on that med for 40 years. I am 63. I have no probs with the med at all. At one point in my life I did have it hey sores on my ankles and shins. Turns out it was the body soap I used.

      1974 for me. I have not experienced sores. Itchy, yes, though random areas. I do experience very low , brain stem headaches especially if I miss a dose and dry mouth daily.
