Levoxyl Tablet Medication
Levoxyl® (levothyroxine sodium) is a thyroid medication that comes in the form of a tablet. It is designed to be taken on an empty stomach 30 to 60 minutes before breakfast. This prescription drug is a synthetic version of the hormone levothyroxine (also known as T4). It is approved for the treatment of:
- Goiters (including thyroid nodules)
- Underactive thyroid (known medically as hypothyroidism)
- Certain types of thyroid cancer (when used with surgery or other treatments).
Though generally safe and well tolerated, Levoxyl is not suitable for everyone. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking it if you have diabetes, osteoporosis, or any heart problems.
