      I have been taking it for 2 years, no problems. I really can't tell any difference that I'm taking it.

      Maryjane - I have been taking both for the last couple months without any problems. I have had multiple blood tests done to make sure the dosage levels are correct, and have had them changed a few times since my original presciption dosages. If these are messing you up, you should consult with your endoconologist to make sure you are "in balance".

      Hi there;
      Yes I am still trying to be regulated with synthroid since my surgery dec. 2,2011. I was on the calcitrol the same dose as you prior to surgery. No one can tell me now if I need to be on it or not. I was up to 300mcg of synthroid and endo dr took me back down to 250 mcg 3 weeks ago and I don't feel good at this dose, I have alligator skin, loss of hair, nails are weird,I am so fatigued and extremely tired all the time. i have no get and go or no reve as they say. I am hoping CTCA can help me with this or a mix of thyroid when I get there in a couple of weeks.

      I take levithyroxid and it is generic for synthroid and I have been on that 125mcg dose for months without any problems. Make sure you take your calcium pills. Calcitriol should be fine I would think, it's a form of Vitamin D.
