Synthroid (Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine):

What is Synthroid (Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine)?

Ranking in the WHO’s List of Essential Medicines, Levothyroxine, commercialized as Synthroid, is one of the most widely used drugs to treat thyroid hormone deficiency and also as a preventive drug in thyroid cancer patients because of it is chemically identical to thyroxin, which is secreted by the thyroid glands. It is preferred over its naturally secreted counterpart, Dextrothyroxine, which was previously used to treat patients with hypercholesterolemia but is now discontinued due to its cardiac side-effects.

How should I take Synthroid (Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine)?

Synthroid must strictly be taken solely under the recommendation of a physician and the dosage must be followed ardently with regular check-ups and assessments. It is available in the form of oral tablets and must be consumed once on an empty stomach, preferably before breakfast. Discontinuation or change in dosage is strictly discouraged without expert opinion.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Every patient is prescribed a specific dosage based on his case history. Everyday dosage must be carefully taken. If you realize that you missed a dosage, immediately consult your physician.

What are the dosage forms and strengths of Synthroid (Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine)?

Synthroid dosage depends upon a variety of factors such as age, cardiovascular status, body weight, special conditions (like pregnancy), nature or stage of condition treated. Since the effect of a particular dose might not be evident for 4–6 weeks, dosage adjustment is done based on periodic assessment. On an average, the following doses are recommended for the corresponding groups of patients:

1. Less than 50 years of age: 1.7mcg/kg/day
2. Older patients: 100mcg/kg/day
3. Patients with cardiac disorders: 25–50mcg/kg/day (below 50 years) and 12.5–25mcg/kg/day (older)
4. Infants: 10–15mcg/kg/day
5. Patients with thyroid cancer: >200mcg/kg/day

Should I use Synthroid (Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine) with food or without food?

Synthroid should be taken as a one single dose in an empty stomach, at least half to an hour before breakfast and 4 hours apart from the drugs that can cause any interference with its absorption.

What are the side effects of Synthroid (Levothyroxine or L-thyroxine)?

Finding the appropriate dosage for a patient is subject to periodic assessment and careful follow-up. Overuse of Synthroid may sometimes lead to log-time suppression of TSH level below the normal level and cause cardiac and low bone mineral density issues (osteoporosis).

The rarest of side-effects include dizziness, eye pain, seizures, knee or hip pain, blurred vision, severe headache, etc.

Overdose always comes with bad news. Some of the common overdose side-effects are disorientation, clammy and cold skin, sudden headache, lightheadedness, unstable pulse, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, hair-loss, muscle weakness, increased appetite, vomiting, etc.

Note: do not use without medical supervision or physician recommendation.
