Description

Euthyrox 50 tablet is a synthetic version of thyroxine, a hormone that is naturally produced in your body. When your body does not produce enough thyroxine, you get hypothyroidism. Some symptoms of hypothyroidism include tiredness, weight gain, and muscle aches. This medicine raises your hormone level to the right amount and helps you get rid of these symptoms. For most people, this is a lifelong medication and should not be discontinued without talking to your doctor.

Dose

Before you start taking Euthyrox 50 Tablet, your doctor will do a blood test to see what dose you need. Once you start taking the medicine, you will have regular blood tests to see how well it is working, and the dose may be adjusted from time to time. It is best taken on an empty stomach before your first meal of the day. You should take this medicine regularly to get the maximum benefit. It may take several weeks before your symptoms start to improve. You may need to take it for the rest of your life. If you stop taking it, your symptoms are likely to come back.

Precautions

Inform your doctor if you have diarrhea, nervousness, irritability, sleep disturbances, shaking hands, or chest pain. Your doctor may adjust your dose.

Leave a gap of at least 4 hours before taking any antacids, calcium or iron supplements, and multivitamins, as these may interfere with the effect of the medicine.

Get your hormone levels checked regularly and inform your doctor if you notice a significant change in your body weight. The dose may need to be adjusted.

Inform your doctor before changing the brand of Euthyrox 50 Tablet as all brands may not have the same effect.
