That's a lot higher dose than they started me on - I'm on 25 mcg of Synthroid (levothyroxine).

Note: Hormone doses are incredibly tiny. I suspect you are on 100 micrograms (mcg) whereas most medications are dosed in milligrams (mg)

Yes, I had to get an echo, EKG and bloodwork before we started the debrafnib/trametinib and again at the monthly followups.

hi tomschwerdt, sorry, thanks for correcting me, it is the mcg. i just came back from getting the bloodwork and the EKG, the 9th i will have the echo. then on the 21st will be the MRI. just trying to keep up is a job in itself. the dr. wants me on the same pills you are on and i was wondering if you would be so kind as to tell me the strength of your medicine. my trametinib is 0.5mg. and the dabrafenib is 50mg. i can't tell you how much it means to have someone talk to you. thank you so much. the dr. said i have approx. 6-10 months. she says these pills will help me to feel better. thank you again and wishing you wellness and happiness.
