Thyroid, also known as desiccated thyroid, is indicated for the treatment of hypothyroidism, which is an underactive thyroid gland. Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine problem that requires lifelong treatment with thyroid hormone pills. Thyroid hormone replacement therapy is essential for individuals with hypothyroidism to regulate the body's energy and metabolism.


  • The dosage of Thyroid is based on the individual's medical condition, lab tests, and response to treatment. For children, the dosage is also based on age/weight.
  • It is usually taken once daily on an empty stomach, 30 minutes to 1 hour before breakfast.
  • Use this medication regularly to obtain the most benefit from it. Taking it at the same time each day can help remember to take it.
  • Do not stop taking this medication without consulting a healthcare provider, as thyroid replacement treatment is usually taken for life.
  • Certain medications, such as antacids, cholestyramine, colestipol, colesevelam, and others, can decrease the absorption of thyroid hormone. Separate the intake of these medications from Thyroid by at least 4 hours.
  • Report any worsening of symptoms or persistence of symptoms after several weeks of taking the medication, such as tiredness, muscle aches, constipation, dry skin, weight gain, slow heartbeat, or sensitivity to cold.

The use of thyroid hormones in the therapy of obesity, alone or combined with other drugs, is unjustified and has been shown to be ineffective. Similarly, the use of thyroid hormones is not justified for the treatment of male or female infertility unless accompanied by hypothyroidism.
