Generic Levothyroxine to treat thyroid hormone deficiency

Description

Generic Levothyroxine is prescribed for the treatment of hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid. The medicine replaces or provides thyroid hormone that is normally secreted by the thyroid gland. Many people are diagnosed with low thyroid hormone levels or hypothyroidism naturally or when their thyroid gland is affected due to radiation or certain medications or after surgical removal of the thyroid gland.

Having enough thyroid hormone is essential to maintain normal physical and mental activity. In kids, thyroid hormone is essential for normal physical and mental development. Generic Levothyroxine is also used for the treatment of other types of thyroid abnormalities, such as thyroid cancer and certain types of goiters. This medicine should not be used to treat fertility issues unless they are caused by hypothyroidism.
