The Wall Street Journal says the FDA is looking at the safety and effectiveness of Synthroid.

The agency has said the drug has a history of problems and should be checked out.

The newspaper quotes an activist who says patients can experience everything from a pounding heart to tiredness.

It also says the FDA never officially approved the drug.

It could be taken off the market, though it wouldn't necessarily happen soon.
