There's no heartburn!!! I took the Tirosint today for the first time, about one thirty in the afternoon. It's now after four pm and there is still no heartburn! Normally, on the levothyroxine tablets, I'd be reaching for every antacid in the house within an hour and I'd still have massive burning up my digestive tract. So far, there is no heartburn on the Tirosint gelcaps. I am so happy, I can't believe it. Let's hope it works as well as it should, though. I will post back after a couple of weeks on it.
It cost less than the pharmacist quoted me on Friday. He had said it was like twenty two dollars, but when I got there today, they only wanted $16.71 for the month's supply of 50mcg, but it is only 28 gelcaps and that might be why it was cheaper. I don't know why they only gave me 28, but my doc gave me plenty of refills. If it works well, it will be very worth it. Right now, it's worth its weight in gold for getting rid of the burning acid on me. I knew the generic tablets were killing me.
