Thyroxin may be taken in a form of a tablet but it can be also injected. Doses are taken once a day, even when injected.
Thyroxin is a substitute for a naturally occurring thyroid hormone in conditions like hypothyroidism in which a person’s thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid hormone. This drug usually needs to be taken long term and the dosage is determined according to many factors individually for every person.
Thyroxine is also taken in a condition called goiter, in which thyroid gland is enlarged. It gets enlarged because of lack of iodine in nutrition. Lack of iodine results in low levels of both T4 and T3 and for that purpose, thyroxin may be taken as well.
The drug dosage should be taken as directed by a doc, it shouldn’t be changed or stopped on our own because we could end up having either overactive (if taken too much) or under active thyroid (if taken too little) and experiencing negative side effects of these conditions.
