Drugs Home > Levoxyl Medication Information

People with an underactive thyroid or other thyroid problems may benefit from Levoxyl® (levothyroxine sodium). The medication is a synthetic version of levothyroxine (T4), a naturally occurring thyroid hormone. It comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day.
Even though people generally respond well to Levoxyl, medication information should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before you start taking the drug to help ensure a safe treatment process. In order to help minimize risks, you should tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, have any heart problems, or have a recent history of heart attack.
As with any medication, side effects are possible with Levoxyl. Some of the most commonly reported include heart palpitations, hair loss, high blood pressure, and insomnia.
