Overview

Levothyroxine is a treatment which increases the level of hormones in those with an underactive thyroid. Symptoms of an underactive thyroid can take a long time to develop. They can include depression, muscle aches, and constipation.

Levothyroxine works to replace the hormones which your thyroid gland produces, known as T3 and T4.

Before taking levothyroxine, your doctor will do a blood test to see what dose you need.


Can I take levothyroxine?

Before taking Levothyroxine, speak to your doctor to ensure it is safe for you to take.

During your consultation with our doctor, ensure you mention any medicines you are currently taking so that our doctor can safely prescribe the medicine for you.

It's important not to take levothyroxine and seek advice from your doctor if you have:

  • had an allergic reaction to levothyroxine or any other medicines in the past
  • an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism)
  • a health issue that affects your adrenal glands

Speak with your doctor first before taking levothyroxine if you have:

  • a heart condition including heart disease, angina or heart failure
  • high blood pressure
  • had a heart attack
  • diabetes (levothyroxine can raise blood sugar levels)

When should I take levothyroxine?

Levothyroxine should be taken once in the morning. You should take it at least 30 minutes before eating food or drinking caffeinated beverages, as these can affect Levothyroxine's ability to work.


How should I take levothyroxine?

To take levothyroxine, swallow one capsule whole with a glass of water, and do not cut or crush the capsule.

Always follow your doctor's instructions and read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine before taking levothyroxine.


When does levothyroxine begin to work?

Levothyroxine usually takes between 7 and 10 days to be absorbed by your cells. However, it can often take many weeks before you notice improvements.


How long do I need to take levothyroxine for?

You will need to take levothyroxine indefinitely. Stopping treatment early will most likely cause your symptoms to return.


What should I do if I forget to take levothyroxine?

If you forget to take your dose of levothyroxine, take it as soon as you remember.

If it's approaching your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your treatment as normal.

Do not double-dose to make up for the missed dose.


What are the side effects of levothyroxine?

Like all medicines, levothyroxine can cause unwanted side effects. However, once you're on the correct dose the side effects should go away.

Usually, side effects are more common if you take more levothyroxine than you require. The symptoms will be the same for those with an overactive thyroid. They include:

  • feeling sick
  • being sick (vomiting) or diarrhoea
  • headaches
  • feeling restless or excitable, or having problems sleeping
  • flushing or sweating
  • muscle cramps
  • shaking, usually of the hands

Serious side effects are rare, but some people may experience them. Call your doctor immediately if you experience:

  • chest pain
  • fast or irregular heartbeats, or palpitations

In rare cases, it's possible to experience a serious allergic reaction to levothyroxine.

Contact your doctor straight away if:

  • you get a skin rash that may include itchy, red, swollen, blistered or peeling skin
  • you're wheezing
  • you get tightness in the chest or throat
  • you have trouble breathing or talking
  • your mouth, face, lips, tongue or throat start swelling

These are warning signs of a serious allergic reaction, which is a medical emergency.

For a complete list of side effects see the leaflet inside your medicines packet.

If you would like to order Levothyroxine, start by selecting a dosage and package type.
