What causes severe headache while on thyroid medication?
Skip next dose, plenty of water,acetaminophen
I went through the query and understood your concern.
Yes the over dose of eltroxin can cause severe head ache. If it is due to over dose you need to skip the next dose and drink plenty of water. An analgesic like acetaminophen will be helpful in reducing pain.
You need to consult your doctor to optimize the dose. If you can't consult, then reduce 12.5 to 25mcg of drug for now till you meet your doctor. After taking the drug you should be symptom free.
I hope this information helps you and answered your query. Feel free to ask if any further queries. I will be glad to answer them.
Wish you good health.
