Synthroid is used to treat thyroid conditions, and replaces a hormone produced by the thyroid. This drug can be used to treat hypothyroidism or to prevent goiter caused by hormone imbalances, cancer, or radiation treatment.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Synthroid exactly as prescribed.
Take on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before your first meal.
Synthroid may take several weeks to show symptom relief, and should not be discontinued unless advised by your doctor.
Synthroid is not a weight loss drug or obesity treatment. Taking it alongside appetite suppressants or weight loss drugs may be dangerous.
Before taking Synthroid, inform your doctor if you have any of the following:
Heart attack symptoms
Adrenal gland disorders
Heart or kidney disease
Low thyroid levels can be dangerous during pregnancy, but your doctor may need to change your dose if you become pregnant.
Some dietary supplements and medications interfere with Synthroid. Take other medications 4 hours before or after Synthroid.
Common side effects of Synthroid include:
Skin rash or hair loss
Tremors and nervousness
More serious side effects include:
Chest pain, shortness of breath, irregular heart rate
Hair loss, dry skin and hair
Fever or sweating
Vomiting, diarrhea, appetite changes
Changes in menstrual period
Can I take other drugs at the same time as Synthroid?
Iron supplements (including multivitamins with iron), calcium supplements and antacids can all interfere with Synthroid. Take these 4 hours before or after Synthroid, and check with your doctor about any other medication you take.
If I get pregnant, should I stop taking Synthroid?
Hypothyroidism can lead to complications during pregnancy, including miscarriage, low birth weight, and stillbirth. Don’t stop taking Synthroid if you get pregnant, and talk to your doctor about your Synthroid dose.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
