What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you forget to take your dose, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 
Each time you have a blood test to monitor your thyroid function, make sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have missed any doses, as this may affect any dose adjustments.
 

How Should Tirosint Be Stored?

This medication should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and light. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children and pets.
 

Available Strengths

Tirosint soft-gelatin capsules come in the following strengths (the colors of the capsules are in parentheses):
 
  • 13 mcg (green)
  • 25 mcg (orange)
  • 50 mcg (white)
  • 75 mcg (purple)
  • 88 mcg (olive)
  • 100 mcg (yellow)
  • 112 mcg (rose)
  • 125 mcg (brown)
  • 137 mcg (turquoise)
  • 150 mcg (blue).
     
Sometimes, the strengths of Tirosint are given in milligrams (mg) instead of micrograms (mcg), which can be confusing. Because there are 1,000 mcg in every mg, Tirosint 100 mcg is equivalent to Tirosint 0.1 mg.
