Levoxyl Overview

Levothyroxine (INN, USAN) or L-thyroxine is a synthetic thyroid hormone that is chemically identical to thyroxine (T4), which is naturally secreted by the follicular cells of the thyroid gland. It is used to treat thyroid hormone deficiency, and occasionally to prevent the recurrence of thyroid cancer. Like its naturally secreted counterpart, levothyroxine is a chiral compound in the L-form. The related drug dextrothyroxine (D-thyroxine) was used in the past as a treatment for hypercholestero...

Hashimotos thyroiditis patients beware of the fillers and Crospovidone/Povidones in your thyroid medications! I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis over 20 years ago and I took Levoxy that whole time and did great on that brand of medication. Levoxyl was taken off the market as everyone knows back in 2013 and that was the start of my throid hell! I was switched to Levothyroxine by Lannett- Walgreens brand. I had a very bad allergic reaction due to the iodine and acacia in the pill. Then I switched to levothyroxine by mylan- Target Store brand and I had another bad allergic reaction due to the Crospovidone and Povidones(non organic iodine) in the pill. Finally I discovered Levoxy is back on the market again so I rushed out to change my medicine back to levoxyl. Come to find out som...

List of all ingredients in 50 mcg white tablet ## Levoxyl contains the active ingredient Levothyroxine, which is a thyroid hormone. There are actually at least a few different 50 mcg white tablets, so I'm only going to post the inactive ingredients of one of them, so you can get an idea of what else they put in their. Inactive Ingredients: butylated hydroxyanisole silicon dioxide crospovidone magnesium stearate mannitol microcrystalline cellulose povidone sodium lauryl sulfate sucrose I hope this helps to answer your question! ## In the name brand Levoxyl, aside from the Levothyroxine active ingredient, the inactive ingredients are listed as: Microcystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium and magnesium stearate. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hashimotos thyroiditis pat...

Is Levoxyl still gluten free since 2013
1 Reply RSS
Hello, Wondering as I was taking Levoxyl for ten plus years and then in April 2013 had to start with another replacement as it was taken off the market. My question as it is on the market to use now is there any concerns with gluten in the products with the companies changing hands, and would there be any problems with cross contamination in the process? If not I will change what I am taking now even though I believe the company is not making a 75 dose, will take a 50 with a split. Will Pfizer have the 75 strength back on the market in the future? Thank~you for your response, Dusty ## Hi Dusty, According to Pfizer, Levoxyl (Levothyroxine Sodium) tablets contain the following list of inactive ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose + croscarmellose sodium + magnesium stearate + calcium s...

Is levoxyl gluten free? ## No, the name brand does not, the inactive ingredients are: Microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium and magnesium stearate. IS there anything else I can help you with? ## Microcrystalline cellulose CAN CONTAIN GLUTEN. I have a reaction to it 45 minutes after taking it every morning. If I take another medication that contains Microcrystalline cellulose such as a blood pressure medication. I am unable to leave the house due to Dh. I called the manufacture of a medication that I suspected was the problem and was told that they did not have to list Diarrhea as a side effect because the medication was not causing it the filler was. Really?

I found a small dark blue pill with a D on half the from and a P on the other half ## Hi Sally, The closest match I've found based on the description provided, is Levoxyl (Levothyroxine sodium) 0.137 mcg. It is a blue pill, kind of an odd shape- like a diamond/oval with the imprint Levoxyl on one side and dp |137 on the other. This medicine is a hormone replacement usually given to patients with thyroid problems, specifically, hypothyroidism. Manufacturer: King Pharmaceuticals Inc. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Levothyroxine Details If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## I have found a small blue diamond shaped pill with only a D imprinted on one side and nothing on the other. Can anyone tell me what kind...

I was prescribed this medication in 2007 for thyroid because of excessive weight gain. Is this medication out dated or obsolete? ## Hello, TeeTee! How are you? You mean you still have some left from a prescription filled back in 2007? Yes, they would no longer be effective and you should dispose of them. Is there anything else I can help with?

anyone get mouth sores from levoxyl ## Hello, Suzanne! How are you doing? Sorry about the problem that you're having. Others that take this medication have complained about them, but it's unclear whether it's due to their thyroid conditions, the medication, or is entirely unrelated. Learn more Levoxyl details here. Have you consulted your doctor? Having them check things out would be the best way to get a proper diagnosis and resolution.

sandoz pharmacy not producing levothroxine..levoxyl not back until 2014
1 Reply RSS
why has Sandoz currently experiencing a "production" problem with their levothyroxine. Afer Levoxyl was taken away (I had taken this for twenty years and could not take Synthroid) the Sandoz worked perfectly. What is going on? ## Hi, Kat! Sorry about the problem that you're having getting your medication. However, no actual reason for the shortages have been provided. The companies aren't actually required to state that information. Learn more Levothyroxine details here. I sincerely wish I had more information for you, but I am not finding any details. There are a few articles that state it was due to some type of packaging problem, but I really don't think that explains shortages continuing for this long and affecting more than one manufacturer. Have you talked to y...

What is a light blue oval pill with an M on one side and L 11 on the other?
2 Replies RSS
It was in with my Levoxyl pill container. Is is a generic pill? ## blue oval pill that has a M on the front, and a L and another letter on the back ## It is Levothyroxin 150 MCG (which is another generic for the same meds) I find levothyroxine works better than L-thyroxine- same shape, a bit darker blue - I think different strengths have different numbers on them.
