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...

ic levoxyl 50 meg tablet dph
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?

mouth and tongue sores
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
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?
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.

My Prescrip Should Contain Generic Levoxyl Which Is Shaped Like Peanut But There Also Blue Round Pills In Bottle Appears To Be Two Different Drugs H
Levoxyl is pinkish in color and shaped like a peanut. The other pill in the bottle is round and blue in color. There are no markings on it. I am concerned that it may be something entirely different and some other drug. ## The ones you mentioned that are shaped similar to a peanut are the name brand Levoxyl tablets. Learn more Levoxyl details here. Where did you get the prescription filled? The reason I'm asking is because prescription tablets should have some type of marking on them to enable their identification, which makes me somewhat suspicious of tablets that don't have any markings at all.

Daflonex SR 90MG
I was prescribed Daflonex SR 90MG supposedly to help with circulation. I have no idea as to what type of med. this is, only get very limited info which indicates that the Daflonex is a dietary supplement. I also take levoxyl for hypothyroidism, B12, & D3 for deficiencies. I also suffer from GERD, for which I was prescribed omeprazole 40mg. to help with the condition. I would really like to get some clear info re: the Daflonex & whether or not, it would interact with any of the other meds I'm currently taking. ## Daflonex SR contains Hesperidin, which is a supplement that is claimed to help with various health issues, including circulation, but it hasn't actually been proven to help with anything. Learn more Hesperidin details here. And as a supplement, it has not been te...

Levoxyl ingredient list
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?

Lecoxyl and tinnitus
When I started taking Levoxyl began noises in the ears. This tablet can be the cause of tinnitus?. You can change the prescription?. ## Tinnitus is caused by increased pressure in the ear due to sodium (According to my doctor), however, I suffer from hypothyroidism and I take Levoxyl tabl .. These tablets contain sodium, which has increased my Tinnitus. What can be done to reduce this?. ## The sodium is actually just the chemical salt they are based on and Tinnitus can be caused by several different things, not just sodium. If you refer to the information here: You'll see that it can have various underlying causes. What advice has your doctor given you?
