Levothyroxine is an effective medication, used to treat hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). The thyroid gland produces hormones to control growth and energy levels, but those with an underactive thyroid do not produce the necessary amount. Levothyroxine is used to replenish this.
What is Levothyroxine?
Levothyroxine, sometimes referred to as Euthyrox or Thyroxine, is a drug prescribed to treat hypothyroidism, a condition characterized by an underactive thyroid gland. Levothyroxine helps replenish the hormone levels that your body cannot produce naturally.
What Effect Does Levothyroxine Have In The Body?
Think of Levothyroxine as the thyroxine hormone in artificial form. When the thyroid gland is functioning properly, it will produce the right amounts of thyroxine. Patients with underactive thyroids take Levothyroxine to boost thyroxine levels.
How Do Patients Benefit From Taking Levothyroxine?
You may have a thyroid gland that's underworking and may not notice immediately since the symptom does not manifest right away. Long-term hypothyroidism disease however may lead to depression, tiredness, and weight gain.
Taking Levothyroxine based on your doctor's recommendation will increase the thyroxine hormone levels in the body so that the symptoms of a malfunctioning thyroid gland may be treated or prevented.
How Is Levothyroxine Used?
Levothyroxine is a prescription drug that may also be referred to as Thyroxine, L-Thyroxine, and Euthyrox. Remember to follow your doctor's directions when taking this medicine and read the medication's information leaflet for more information.
Levothyroxine comes in tablet form which should be taken with a glass of water, preferably in the morning before breakfast or whatever your first meal is for the day. Some patients take Levothyroxine as a lifetime medication so it's crucial to understand how it is taken properly.
What Is The Right Levothyroxine Dosage?
Levothyroxine tablets are available in 5 different strengths, 100mcg, 75mcg, 50mcg, 25mcg, and 12.5mcg.
Your physician will determine the right Levothyroxine starting dose after asking you to undergo a blood test.
The standard Levothyroxine tablets come in 5 strengths of 12.5mcg, 25mcg, 50mcg, 75mcg, and 100mcg. The typical starting dose for adults is 50 to 100mcg. To correct the thyroxine levels of the patient, the doctor may augment the dose every 3 or 4 weeks. The daily dose may be as much as 100 to 200mcg daily which may be taken in different ways.
For example, if the daily recommended dose is 100mcg, the patient may take four tablets with 25mcg strength each or a single tablet with a strength of 100mcg.
In case you forgot to take a scheduled dose, make sure to take Levothyroxine immediately after remembering. But if the time is too close to the next scheduled Levothyroxine dose, skip it and take the next scheduled dose.
If you took more Levothyroxine than you were asked to take, you should immediately call your doctor or the nearest emergency care facility. The symptom of a Levothyroxine overdose is an irregular heartbeat, fever, and chest pain.
You are not supposed to stop your Levothyroxine intake unless it is specifically recommended by your physician. Levothyroxine treatments are meant to be long-term thus you should continue your treatment as you were prescribed by a medical professional.
