Levothyroxine generic name, cost, uses,side effects, warnings

Description

Generic Synthroid is a medicine that contains Levothyroxine that is used to treat hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid. Levothyroxine is nothing but a hormone that replaces or provides thyroid hormone, which is normally secreted by the thyroid gland. The thyroid hormone levels are secreted less when the thyroid gland is injured by certain medications, radiation therapy, or surgical removal of the gland.

Having sufficient thyroid hormone is essential to maintain normal physical and mental activity. Generic Synthroid is prescribed to make sure you get enough thyroid hormone on a daily basis. It is also used to treat certain types of goiters and thyroid cancer. This medication does not treat infertility unless it is associated with hypothyroidism.
