The reason I asked was this language but now I see it is only for OVERTREATMENT with levo


Overtreatment with Levothyroxine sodium may have adverse cardiovascular effects such as an increase in heart rate, cardiac wall thickness, and cardiac contractility and may precipitate angina or arrhythmias.

I am not needlessly raising the point to badmouth the drug. I am simply asking if anyone has heard of this because I saw it  online somewhere and I want to make sure I am safe on it.

Talk is one thing.  Scientific proof is another entirely.  If you have some links to scientific evidence of some kind, please post them so that we can evaluate.
