There’s a Nationwide Shortage of Levothyroxine. This is Why

Tori Marsh - January 12, 2018

One of the most popular drugs in the country, levothyroxine – also known as the brand name Synthroid – is in short supply, making prices higher and even leaving some patients without the drug.

Why Synthroid Is the Most Prescribed Drug in the US

Katie Mui - November 07, 2017

Why is Synthroid (levothyroxine), a medication that treats thyroid hormone deficiencies—or hypothyroidism, as it’s called—the number one drug in terms of the number of prescriptions written by physicians?

It can be challenging to identify which medication may be causing drug-induced diarrhea, especially if you’re taking multiple medications.

8 Things That Can Mess With Your Thyroid Medication

Dr. Sharon Orrange - September 07, 2017

Generic levothyroxine and brand name Synthroid are two of the most commonly prescribed medications in the U.S. for the treatment of hypothyroidism. Other similar medications include Levoxyl, Tirosint, and Unithroid. Synthetic thyroxine (T4), as Synthroid or the generic option levothyroxine, is a prohormone that is de-iodinated in our tissues to form T3, the active thyroid hormone. Once your doctor starts you on thyroid replacement they will follow your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) blood test and make adjustments in dosage as needed. See More
