Uses
Thyronorm (Thyroxine Sodium) is used by patients who have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. This condition affects the thyroid function, and affected patients do not produce sufficient amounts of thyroxine. Possible causes include injury or surgery on the thyroid, however it can also occur naturally. The thyroid hormone plays a vital role in helping with the body's regulation of metabolism and energy.

Treatment with this synthetic thyroid hormone drug aims to return the thyroid levels to normal, so as to improve the mental function, cognitive ability and the function of the digestive tract, while also helping to increase energy levels and reducing triglycerides. Other uses include treating a thyroid gland that has become enlarged (also called a goiter) and thyroid cancer.

Dosage and Administration
Blood tests will be required in patients suspected of hypothyroidism, and if treatment with Thyronorm (Thyroxine Sodium) is deemed necessary by your doctor, a suitable dosage regimen will be individualised. In order for this medicine to work effectively, the doctor may recommend taking the tablet in the morning, on an empty stomach, 30 minutes prior to the consumption of breakfast.

This medicine comes as 100mcg strength tablets, which must be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. Your doctor may tell you to start treatment with a low dosage, which may be adjusted during treatment, based on your response to the medicine. Medical tests may be required regularly, to test thyroid levels. Attend any scheduled medical appointments.

Side effects
Treating thyroid problems with Thyronorm (Thyroxine Sodium) may cause:

  • Depression
  • Loss of hair
  • Mood changes
  • Changes in body weight
  • Feelings of restlessness

The side effects listed above should disappear as you adjust to the medicine. However, if you experience any serious side effects, such as dilated veins, fainting, severe tiredness, tremors, perspiration or any other reactions which have not been listed here, you should see your doctor immediately.

Precautions
Under no circumstances should this medicine be taken for weight loss, as safe doses will not help to decrease the body weight.

If you are undergoing blood tests to check the levels of thyroid hormone in your body, it is important to note that certain medicines may affect these test results. Inform your doctor of any drugs you are taking prior to the commencement of the blood tests.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
