    Is Synthroid better to take than Levothyroxine when trying to conceive?
    rloggins posted:
    Hi, I am 29 years old with two children 9 and 7. My husband and I are trying to have one more child and we have been trying for about 8 or 9 months now. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroid in 2012 ( my youngest was 3 then) . I take 50 mgs of Levothyroxine and my levels are stable being under 2. My question is, Should I talk to my Dr. about being put Synthroid being that it is a name brand? I have looked up different threads and I see some people say that name brand is the way to go. I am starting to wonder why I am not getting Prego. I had absolutely no problem with my first two. HELP !
