Uses of Levothyroxine Tablets

Levothyroxine is a hormone replacement usually given to patients with hypothyroidism.
Levothyroxine is also frequently used to treat goiter because it usually lowers the levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), a hormone that is considered goitrogenic (goiter-inducing). Levothyroxine is also prescribed for the management of cancerous thyroid nodules.

Levothyroxine Tablets - Dosage

Levothyroxine Tablets are administered as a single daily dose, preferably half to one-hour before breakfast. Levothyroxine should be taken at least 4 hours apart from drugs that are known to interfere with its absorption.
For adult hypothyroidism levothyroxine is started at 12.5-125 mcg/day. Starting doses and dose changes may differ with individual patients based upon age, the presence of cardiovascular disease, the development of tolerance (reduced effectiveness with continued use), side effects to the medication, and blood levels of thyroid hormone. It may take one to three weeks after initiating therapy with levothyroxine or changing the dose before effects are seen. The goal of replacement therapy is to maintain a normal blood thyroxine level. Use Levothyroxine Tablets only as prescribed by your doctor. Do not stop or change the amount your dosage, unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Levothyroxine is a synthetic (man-made) version of the principle thyroid hormone, thyroxine (T4) that is made and released by the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormone increases the metabolic rate of cells of all tissues in the body. In the fetus and newborn, thyroid hormone is important for the growth and development of all tissues including bones and the brain. In adults, thyroid hormone helps to maintain brain function, food metabolism, and body temperature, among other effects.

Missed Dose

Take the missed dose of Levothyroxine Sodium Tablets as soon as you remember.

Storage Insructions for Levothyroxine Tablets

Levothyroxine Tablets should be kept at room temperature, 15-30°C (59-86°F) in a light-resistant, tight container.

Warnings and Precautions when using Levothyroxine Tablets

Before using Levothyroxine Sodium Tablets please inform your doctor all the medicines that you take including no prescription medications, over the counter medicines and herbal remedies. There are foods and other substances that can interfere with absorption of thyroxine replacement. Patients under treatment ought to avoid taking calcium and iron supplements within 4 hours, as well as soy products within 3 hours of the medication, as these can reduce absorption of the drug. Grapefruit juice may delay the absorption of levothyroxine, but it is not believed to have a significant effect on bioavailability. Other substances that reduce absorption are aluminium and magnesium containing antacids, simethicone or sucralfate,cholestyramine, colestipol, Kayexalate. Different substances cause other adverse effects that may be severe. Ketamine may cause hypertension and tachycardia and tricyclic and tetracyclic antidepressants increase its toxicity. On the other hand Lithium can cause hyperthyroidism (but most often hypothyroidism) by affecting iodine metabolism of the thyroid itself and thus inhibits synthetic levothyroxine as well. Inform your doctor if you are allergic to any foods or medicines, are pregnant or intend to become pregnant, are breast-feeding or are taking any other medications, including prescription and over-the-counter preparations. Inform your doctor of any other medical conditions you may have, particularly heart disease, diabetes, clotting disorders, and adrenal or pituitary gland problems. Your dose of medicines used to treat these other conditions may need to be modified. Thyroid hormones, including Levothyroxine, either alone or with other therapeutic agents, should not be used for the treatment of obesity or for weight loss.

Side Effects of Levothyroxine Tablets

Dosing of Levothyroxine Tablets must be carefully controlled to achieve TSH levels within the normal reference range. Long term suppression of TSH values below normal values will frequently cause cardiac side effects and contribute to decreases in bone mineral density (in contrast too high TSH levels are also well known to contribute to osteoporosis). Long-term levothyroxine sodium therapy has been associated with increased bone resorptionn in women. This decreases bone mineral density, specially in post-menopausal women.
Patients prescribed too high of a dose of levothyroxine may experience effects which mimic hyperthyroidism. Overdose can result in heart palpitations, abdominal pain, nausea, anxiousness, confusion, agitation, insomnia, weight loss, and increased appetite. Allergic reactions to the drug are characterized by symptoms such as difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, or swelling of the face and tongue. Acute overdose may cause fever, hypoglycemia, heart failure, coma and unrecognized adrenal insufficiency.
Acute massive overdose may be life-threatening; treatment should be symptomatic and supportive. Massive overdose may require beta-blockers for increased sympathomimetic activity.
The effects of overdosing appear 6 hours to 11 days after ingestion.
