Question 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?

Answer:

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.
