In reply to Lithium and goiter: time to d/c? PLEASE READ, posted by doggrrl on July 11, 2003, at 21:00:08

> My thyroid levels are all normal, but I have a goiter that wasn't there 6 months ago. Will it keep growing? Is it dangerous?

It is so simple. The Lithium may sometimes cause goiter. Your thyroid function is slowering down a bit. Then to compensate, your thyroid is growing in size. So your tests came back normal.

So personally i would take a small dose of Synthroid, 25 mcg, to avoid a possible damage of your Thyroid.

Good Luck!
