What is Levothyroxine?
Levothyroxine is a medication used in the treatment of hypothyroidism, also known as an underactive thyroid, which replenishes the level of hormones that your body doesn’t naturally create.
How does Levothyroxine work?
Levothyroxine is a synthetic version of the thyroxine hormone that healthy thyroid glands produce. For people who suffer with an underactive thyroid, the gland is not producing enough and Levothyroxine therefore boosts this level.
What are the benefits of taking Levothyroxine?
Sufferers of an underactive thyroid may not notice straight away, as symptoms rarely present themselves immediately. However, in the long term, hypothyroidism can lead to weight gain, tiredness and depression.
Taking Levothyroxine increases the level of thyroxine hormones in your body, which prevents the symptoms of an underactive thyroid.
How do I use Levothyroxine?
Levothyroxine is a prescription-only medication. Always follow the advice of your doctor and read the patient information leaflet provided in the medication packet.
Swallow the tablets with plenty of water, ideally before breakfast (or your first meal of the day). You may be taking this medicine for the rest of your life so it’s important that you understand how to take it properly.
The standard Levothyroxine tablets come in 5 strengths of 12.5mcg, 25mcg, 50mcg, 75mcg and 100mcg.
You doctor will decide on your starting dose based on the results of your blood test. Most adults start with 50-100mcg every day, but this may be increased every 3-4 weeks until your thyroxine levels are correct. Your final daily dose may be up to 100-200 micrograms every day, which can be made up in a number of ways.
For example, 100mcg daily dose could be taken as a single 100mcg tablet, or as four 25mcg tablets.
If you forget a dose then you should take it as soon as possible after you remember. However, if it’s nearly time for your next dose then skip the forgotten one and move onto your next one. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
If you take more Levothyroxine tablets than you should then contact a doctor or emergency service straight away. Symptoms of an overdose include chest pain, a fever or an irregular heartbeat.
You should not stop taking Levothyroxine tablets unless you are specifically told to by a doctor or prescriber. These tablets are for long term use and you should continue to take them for as long as advised.
