Synthriod

Were you looking for information about Synthroid? Synthriod is a common misspelling of Synthroid.
 
Synthroid® is licensed to help boost thyroid hormone levels in people who have an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) or other thyroid problems. Even though it is synthetic, the medication is identical to the naturally occurring hormone levothyroxine (also known as T4).
 
Prior to taking this product, tell your healthcare provider about any medical conditions you may have, such as heart problems, diabetes, or osteoporosis. Most people tolerate the medicine well; however, side effects may occur. Possible side effects include hair loss, high blood pressure, insomnia, and feelings of a rapidly beating heart.
