  • wow, that's the lowest dose I've ever heard of anyone taking! Have you called the phamacy to fing out how much it costs? I don't think it's as much as you think it is. I buy the name brand kind (synthroid) that is 100mcg and it's only $22 a month. My husband is on a lot of drugs for diabetes, high blood pressure, and asthma. He get's his meds at Walmart and gets a discount on their discount plan.
    Are you sure you can't afford it? If you really can't, that alone should qualify you for medicaid shouldn't it?
