Synthroid finds use as a hormone-regulating agent for managing low levels of triiodothyronine/thyroxine. It also has a pronounced therapeutic effect on goiters of certain types. Synthroid often accompanies surgeries and other medical means of treating thyroid cancer. The drug compensates for the insufficient production of thyroid hormones by standing in their place as a synthetic substitution. Compensations of this kind help the patient’s body to restitute the normal rate of metabolism. Synthroid also helps to fight obesity due to its ability to remove the initial thyroid gland-related causes as such.

Synthroid is highly effective in therapies of low levels of the thyroid hormone and goiters of certain kinds. This medicine frequently accompanies surgical interventions and other remedies for the management of specific types of thyroid cancer. Chemically, Synthroid is a pure thyroid hormone. Its artificial structure fully corresponds to that of the natural thyroid hormone produced in the patient’s body; the substitution allows the organism to make up for insufficient hormonal levels.
Directions for use
You should strictly stick to your doctor’s directions.
Make sure your stomach is empty when taking Synthroid. Ingest one pill orally not later than 1-1.5 hour before a meal.
Avoid taking an antacid or any iron- or calcium-containing product within a time span of 4 hours of administering Synthroid.
If you or your child have trouble swallowing the whole tablet, you may prefer to crush the prescribed drug dose. Thoroughly mix the resulting drug powder with up to 10 mL (1-2 teaspoons) of water.

Direct all your questions regarding the appropriate use to a pharmacist.
