    Levothyroxine sodium is a thyroid harmone. It is a replacement therapy. So it should be taken life long . Caution should be taken for the people with ischemic heart disease.

    A synthetic thyroid hormone used as a thyroid hormone replacement drug (brand names include Eltroxin, Levothroid, Levoxine, Levoxyl, Synthroid) used to treat an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Because not all brands of levothyroxine sodium are equivalent, it is important not to switch between brand names or even between generic formulations.

    Common Misspellings: levothyroxin
