Levothyroxine Tablet 100micrograms is a synthetic thyroid hormone used to treat hypothyroidism and other thyroid disorders. This medication contains levothyroxine sodium, which replaces or supplements the body’s natural thyroid hormones. Levothyroxine helps restore normal thyroid hormone levels, alleviating symptoms associated with thyroid deficiency.

Uses

Levothyroxine Tablet 100mcg is primarily used to:

  • Treat hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)
  • Manage goiter (enlarged thyroid gland)
  • Suppress thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in thyroid cancer patients
  • Serve as part of the treatment for myxedema coma

Benefits

  • Effectively replaces or supplements thyroid hormone
  • Alleviates symptoms of hypothyroidism
  • Helps maintain normal metabolism and body functions
  • Supports proper growth and development in children
  • Improves quality of life for patients with thyroid disorders

How It Works

Levothyroxine is a synthetic form of thyroxine (T4), the main hormone produced by the thyroid gland. Once absorbed, it is converted to triiodothyronine (T3), the active form of thyroid hormone. These hormones regulate metabolism, affecting nearly every organ system in the body. By replacing deficient thyroid hormones, levothyroxine helps restore normal physiological functions.

Dosage

The typical starting dose for adults is 50-100mcg daily, which may be adjusted based on TSH levels and clinical response. The 100mcg tablet is often used for maintenance therapy. Dosage adjustments are usually made in 12.5-25mcg increments at 4-6 week intervals. Always follow your healthcare provider’s instructions regarding dosage.

Side Effects

Common side effects may include headache, nervousness, irritability, sleep problems, and changes in appetite or weight. These are usually mild and often resolve as the body adjusts to the medication. Serious side effects, though rare, can include chest pain, rapid or irregular heartbeat, or allergic reactions. If you experience any severe side effects, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

Warning

Levothyroxine should not be used for weight loss. Taking too much can lead to thyrotoxicosis. It may interact with certain medications and medical conditions. Close monitoring is required when starting treatment or adjusting doses, especially in older adults and those with heart disease.

Interactions

  • Calcium and iron supplements
  • Antacids containing aluminum or magnesium
  • Cholestyramine and colestipol
  • Certain diabetes medications
  • Estrogen and oral contraceptives

Important Information
