Thyronorm 75 mg
Thyronorm 75 mg is a prescription treatment for Hypothyroidism; a condition occurs when your body cannot produce enough hormones. Our thyroid gland is small and produces certain hormones to help your body regulate and use energy. The small gland controls your heart beats and digestive system function. Without appropriate thyroid hormones, our body functions begin to slow down. The symptoms of the condition include weight gain and fatigue. The signs and symptoms become common with age regardless of your thyroid function. If you have recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, it is important to start a safe and effective treatment. Thyronorm has Levothyroxine sodium which will replace what your body is not producing on its own and help return your body's normal function. The medicine Levothyroxine's active component is chemically identical to Thyroxine hormone produced by your thyroid gland.
Always take Levothyroxine sodium 75 mg as per your doctor's recommendation. You must check with your doctor if you are unsure how much and when to take medicine or have any other doubt about this drug's usage. Your doctor will determine your daily dose based on your clinical examinations and diagnostic tests reports. In the case of reduced thyroid function, a lower dose may be recommended to achieve the gland's normal functioning range. Elderly patients, patients with CHD, and chronic underactive thyroid function should exercise caution when starting treatment with thyroid hormones. Doctors usually prescribe the lowest dose for such patients, and the dose may increase slowly with frequent thyroid hormone monitoring.
For exact dosage information, contact your doctor. Your doctor may recommend Thyronorm 75 mg daily as initial treatment if you are an adult. The dose may increase gradually based on your condition as per requirement. One tablet of Levothyroxine sodium is enough in most cases. For underactive thyroid function management, Thyronorm 75 is extremely effective as a single dose treatment. If instructed by the doctor, the dose may increase to achieve normal thyroid function.
Furthermore, before you begin treatment with this thyroid medication, it is important to rule out certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure, coronary heart disease (CHD), angina pectoris, or thyroid autonomy (uncontrolled thyroid production hormone in some areas). One must not take this drug to achieve weight loss goals. If you have normal thyroid levels, additional intake of this drug may cause serious side effects. Additional intake of thyroxine hormone combined with certain weight loss products, will not cause weight loss. Let your doctor know if you are taking a weight loss medication such as Orlistat. Special care should be taken if you are pregnant, have an underactive thyroid, and undergo therapy to suppress thyroid cancer growth, heart symptoms, or have diabetes. Your dose may need to be altered if you have any of these conditions. If your child is receiving Thyronorm medicine, partial loss of hair may occur during the initial months of taking medicine. But these side effects are temporary, and hair usually grows back. The doctor will regularly monitor kids' blood pressure as a rapid fall in blood pressure have been reported in exceptionally low birth weight preterm neonates.
