What is Synthroid?
Synthroid is a synthetic thyroid hormone licensed to treat an underactive thyroid and related conditions. It is identical to the hormone levothyroxine, also known as T4, which is naturally produced by the thyroid gland. Since the thyroid gland produces two hormones levothyroxine and triiodothyronine, known as T3, many patients need to take both these hormones. However, the hormone T4 is naturally converted into T3 as necessary. Therefore many patients can successfully receive just T4, such as this drug. It comes in tablet dosage form containing Levothyroxine sodium as main ingredient.

When is Synthroid indicated?
Synthroid is indicated in replacement or supplemental treatment of congenital or acquired hypothyroidism of various etiologies, except for the temporary hypothyroidism that is typically associated with the inflammation of the thyroid gland (subacute thyroiditis). It is also prescribed for the treatment and prevention of euthyroid goiters, including thyroid nodules, and certain types of thyroid cancer after surgery and radioiodine therapy.

How to take Synthroid?
Synthroid dosage depends on the gravity of the disease, results of the blood test, age of the patient and concomitant conditions. Therefore the correct dosage must be determined by the thyroid specialist. Therapy usually starts at lower doses and is gradually up-titrated to the average adult dose of 100 mcg to 125 mcg a day. The medication should be taken as a single dose on an empty stomach, i.e. 30-60 minutes before breakfast. When necessary, tablets may be split, crushed or mixed with 1-2 teaspoons of water. As a rule, thyroid replacement treatment must be received for life.

What are Synthroid side effects?
Synthroid side effects are usually associated with the therapeutic overdosage. Immediately report to the doctor if you develop chest pain, heart palpitations or difficulty breathing, so that he could adjust your dosage. Other possible effects are: weight loss, diarrhea, tremor, headache, insomnia, menstrual cycle changes and temporary hair loss (usually during the first months of therapy as the body adjusts to the medication).

When is Synthroid contraindicated?
Synthroid is contraindicated in patients with acute myocardial infarction, uncorrected adrenocortical insufficiency and patients with untreated subclinical or overt thyrotoxicosis.
