Suggest an alternative of Levoxyl

I have been on Levoxyl for years; when it was off the market for a year I was on Unithyroid; not sure if it was the brand name or generic. I went back on Levoxyl when it came back on the market; it has gotten very expensive so I asked the doctor if I could try the generic; she said yes; when I picked up the prescription today it said levothyroxine sodium; I cannot take synthroid; have I made a mixtake?
