What is Synthroid?
Synthroid, with the generic name levothyroxine sodium, is an oral medication indicated to treat hypothyroidism and pituitary thyrotropin (thyroid-stimulating hormone, TSH) suppression. Keeping the normal level of thyroid hormone is important in maintaining mental health and doing physical activities.
This drug is a thyroid hormone that activates gene transcription and the synthesis of messenger RNA and cytoplasmic proteins. It is available in 300 mcg, 200 mcg, 175 mcg, 150 mcg, 137 mcg, 125 mcg, 112 mcg, 100 mcg, 88 mcg, 75 mcg, 50 mcg, and 25 mcg tablet forms.

Some medical conditions may greatly affect how you would respond to this drug. Moreover, talk about all the medications and supplements you are taking. Drugs like antacids, sucralfate, iron, and calcium supplements, among others, have drug interactions with levothyroxine.
It is crucial to look out for Synthroid allergy while on this medication. Do not take this drug if you have a known allergy to levothyroxine or any inactive ingredients each tablet may contain.

If this occurs, discontinue the medication and seek emergency help.
