Levothryroxine

Were you looking for information about Levothyroxine? Levothryroxine is a common misspelling of levothyroxine.
 
Levothyroxine sodium is a prescription medication that is approved to treat certain types of thyroid problems, including an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). The drug is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring thyroid hormone and works by boosting the thyroid hormones in the body. Typically, levothyroxine is taken once a day in the morning. Each time you get your blood tests to monitor your thyroid function, be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have missed any doses, as this may affect any dose adjustments.
