Synthroid

Synthroid (levothyroxine) is a synthetic form of one of the two hormones produced by the thyroid gland, the other being triiodothyronine. These hormones are responsible for maintaining normal metabolism in the body. Synthroid is used to treat hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough of these hormones. Synthroid is also used to treat goiters (enlarged thyroid glands), which can be caused by either hypothyroidism or Graves' disease. Synthroid is available in generic form.

Levothyroxine is the active ingredient in Synthroid, and is also available as a generic drug. Generic drugs are often less expensive than the brand-name version. In some cases, they may not be available in every strength or form as the brand-name drug. Synthroid is available in the following strengths:

  • Synthroid 25 mcg (0.025 mg)
  • Synthroid 50 mcg (0.05 mg)
  • Synthroid 75 mcg (0.075 mg)
  • Synthroid 88 mcg (0.088 mg)

Synthroid may be taken with or without food. If you take Synthroid with food, you may need to take a lower dose. Follow your doctor's instructions.

To be sure this medication is not causing harmful effects, your blood will need to be tested often. Your thyroid function may also need to be checked. Do not miss any follow up visits to your doctor for blood or urine tests. Visit your doctor regularly.
