Product Details

Description:

SYNTHROID is a replacement for a thyroid hormone that is usually produced by your thyroid gland to regulate the body's energy and metabolism. SYNTHROID contains a chemical called Levothyroxine which is primarily used to treat hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone). SYNTHROID is also used to prevent and/or treat an enlarged thyroid gland which is referred to as goiter. This medication should not be used to treat weight related problems. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Directions:

SYNTHROID comes in a tablet form and should be taken orally, exactly as prescribed by your physician. It is recommended to take a tablet once a day in the morning on an empty stomach, an hour before eating. Take the tablet with a full glass of water at the same time each day. SYNTHROID should be taken at least 4 hours apart from drugs that are known to interfere with its absorption.

For children and infants who have difficulty consuming tablets, crush the tablet and mix it with 1-2 teaspoons of water and give it immediately without food or formula.

It may take a few weeks before you notice the effects of the medication so do not stop taking the medication. It is advised to visit your physician, as your blood, liver and kidneys might need to be regularly tested to ensure the medication is working properly.

Cautions:

Before taking SYNTHROID, consult your physician to verify if you are allergic to it or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems.

SYNTHROID may not be recommended for certain situations and/or conditions, so share your medical history with your physician. Conditions such as increased thyroid hormones (thyrotoxicosis), decreased adrenal gland function, heart disease (such as coronary artery disease, irregular heartbeat), high blood pressure and diabetes may indicate this medication is not right for you. It is important to consult your physician about any health conditions such as:

  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Low levels of pituitary hormone
  • Heart disease
  • Angina
  • Previous heart attack
  • An unusual or abnormal reaction to SYNTHROID, other thyroid hormones, medications, foods, dyes or preservatives
  • High blood pressure
  • Dieting or on a weight loss program
  • If you are pregnant, breast feeding or currently trying to become pregnant, make sure your doctor is aware of your maternal condition
  • Advise your physician if you are planning to have surgery
  • Tell your doctor about all prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products that you are using

best choice
Item arrived before my current supply ran out. Delighted they called me to remind me to do the refill. Much less expensive than using either my old drug plan or my newer medicare part D plan since I prefer the nongeneric

Affordable and legitamate
This medication is from Abbott and the real thing. When I received my first bottle from Canada Pharmacy, I compared it to what I had gotten from my local pharmacy here in FL. It's the exact same medicine, only much more affordable. I work in the medical profession and it's common knowledge that Brand Name Synthroid is more effective than the generic. I highly recommend this product for it's quality and medicinal properties.

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
