Is Levoxyl Still Gluten Free Since 2013

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 sulfate dihydrate + sodium bicarbonate.

To my knowledge none of those are directly associated with gluten. However I would encourage you to see the link below for more details on specific ingredients and their derivatives:

As to your other concerns about how these pharmaceutical companies handle/process medications to ensure quality and safety, this is something you may have to take up with the manufacturer themselves for an overview of how they run things. Getting in touch with Pfizer directly should also open the door about their future intentions on bringing back the 75mg strength. I wish I could offer you more information, but these are details that only the company would know.

Hope this helps!
