Hello,

According to the National Institute of Health levothyroxine sodium tablets are indicated as a replacement therapy in primary (thyroidal), secondary (pituitary), and tertiary (hypothalamic) congenital or acquired hypothyroidism. For general informational purposes I have included below some information on this medication.

This medication comes in the form of tablets, oral liquid, powder and injections.

The NIH lists the following as potential adverse reactions to the medication.

General:
fatigue, increased appetite, weight loss, heat intolerance, fever, excessive sweating

Central nervous system:
headache, hyperactivity, nervousness, anxiety, irritability, emotional lability, insomnia

Musculoskeletal:
tremors, muscle weakness, muscle spasm

Cardiovascular:
palpitations, tachycardia, arrhythmias, increased pulse and blood pressure, heart failure, angina, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest

Respiratory:
dyspnea

Gastrointestinal: diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, elevations in liver function tests

Dermatologic: hair loss, flushing, rash

Endocrine: decreased bone mineral density

Reproductive: menstrual irregularities, impaired fertility

The NIH warns that this medication should not be used to treat obesity or administered to aid in weight loss.

If you have any questions regarding this drug please ask me and I will happily provide you additional information.
