Frequently Asked Questions
What is levothyroxine (Synthroid) and how does it work?
Levothyroxine is a thyroid hormone replacement medication, which helps regulate your body’s energy and metabolism.
A Synthroid prescription does this by replacing or providing more of the missing hormones normally produced by your thyroid gland.
What are the uses for levothyroxine (Synthroid)?
Levothyroxine is frequently used to treat hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid gland).
As well, a levothyroxine prescription can also be used to decrease the size of goiters (enlarged thyroid glands), and to treat some types of thyroid cancer.
In patients who’ve injured their thyroid glands through radiation or other medications, or have had their thyroids surgically removed, Synthroid provides the missing hormones their bodies can no longer produce.
This is especially important for children, who need healthy thyroid hormone levels to ensure normal mental and physical development.
How do you use levothyroxine (Synthroid)?
Levothyroxine is available as a tablet, capsule or liquid form. All of which are to be taken orally.
Dosage and regularity of use will depend on your specific needs and the recommendations of the doctor who writes your prescription.
Never take more than your prescribed dosage, as taking too much Synthroid can cause reactions similar to hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland), which can lead to severe side effects.
What are the side effects and risks of levothyroxine (Synthroid)?
Common side effects from taking a Synthroid prescription include:
- Difficulty swallowing
- Chest pain, tightness or discomfort
- Hives, welts or rash
- Irregular or difficulty breathing
- Menstrual changes
- Swelling of the eyes, face, throat or mouth
- Heat intolerance
- Fast, slow or irregular heartbeat
If you begin to experience confusion, disorientation, slurred speech or loss of consciousness contact a doctor immediately, as you could be experiencing an overdose or allergic reaction.
Who should not take levothyroxine (Synthroid)?
Before you consider accepting a levothyroxine prescription online, be sure to talk to a doctor if you’ve ever experienced:
- Adrenal problems
- Angina (severe chest pain)
- Blood clotting problems
- Adrenal gland insufficiency (underactive adrenal gland)
- Heart attack
- Thyrotoxicosis (excess thyroid hormone in your body)
- Heart disease
- Blood vessel disease
- Heart rhythm problems
- Pituitary gland problems
- Osteoporosis (weakened bone disease)
- Anemia (a blood disorder where your body doesn’t receive enough oxygen from red blood cells)
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, talk to your doctor before starting a levothyroxine prescription, because it is unclear if it could have effects for unborn or breastfeeding babies.
Don’t suddenly stop taking this medication without first consulting your doctor. They may recommend that you gradually reduce your dosage, rather than stop completely.
