kristina-
I'm not understanding your post, but Levoxyl and Levothyroxine are two separate Rx--BOTH are generic forms of Synthroid (the brand).

It was Levoxyl that was taken off the market last year--apparently due to some packaging problems that tainted an unknown quantity of the pills. They expect to be back in 2015.

I went on Synthroid because I'd already tried Levothyroxine and I cannot tolerate it. I'm glad it works for you because it would be cheaper for me to take that than the brand.

My pharmacist insisted that I could take Levothyroxine because he said it's 'identical' to Levoxyl, but my endo (and other pharmacists) tell me that there are no absolutely identical Rx, and it's common to have problems with certain brands.
