THYROUP 75MCG TABLET
THYROUP 75MCG TABLET are synthetic thyroid hormones which work by replacing the thyroid hormone in the body when the natural production of thyroid hormones is not sufficient to meet the needs of the body. THYROUP 75MCG TABLET is primarily taken for treatment of hypothyroidism or low secretion of thyroid hormone. It comprises levothyroxine which is a synthetic thyroid hormone that is chemically similar to thyroxine produced by our thyroid gland. Levothyroxine helps to replace missing thyroid hormone and/or to relieve stress on the thyroid gland.
Hypothyroidism is a chronic condition in which our thyroid gland (located below the throat in the neck) is not able to produce enough thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormones are composed of triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) which controls the body's metabolism. In the condition of underactive thyroid body’s metabolism slows down and the person feels less energetic. Other symptoms include easy fatigability, constipation, weight gain, feeling cold even in warm weathers, dry skin or too much or too less menses (in women) or even low mood. Treatment of hypothyroid is essential to restore the normal body metabolism (basal metabolic rate).
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, your doctor will advise you to undertake a blood test called 'thyroid function test' which checks three hormones related to thyroid - TSH, T3, T4. High TSH and low T3/T4 indicates that your thyroid gland is not functioning normally. The dose of THYROUP 75MCG TABLET is adjusted by your doctor on the basis of your body weight and thyroid function test report. It may take some weeks for the medicine to fully show its effects. Regular monitoring of thyroid function is advised to ensure that you receive the optimum dose of THYROUP 75MCG TABLET.
Take THYROUP 75MCG TABLET as prescribed by your doctor once daily, on an empty stomach, one-half to one hour before breakfast with a full glass of water. THYROUP 75MCG TABLET usually does not have major side effects when taken regularly in the prescribed dosage but, overdosage may cause headache, nervousness, sleeplessness, irritability, diarrhoea, muscle spasm, weight loss, feeling hot even in cool environments, menstrual irregularities (in women) and skin rash. If you missed a dose do not take a double dose as it may produce serious side effects.
Your doctor may prescribe calcium or vitamin D supplements alongside THYROUP 75MCG TABLET for your bone health. THYROUP 75MCG TABLET should not be used for the purpose of weight loss alone. People affected with diabetes taking THYROUP 75MCG TABLET may have altered blood glucose control that may result in increased antidiabetic agents or insulin requirements. Hence, it is recommended that people with diabetes should contact a doctor and carefully monitor their glucose level after starting, changing or discontinuing thyroid hormone therapy.
Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)
THYROUP 75MCG TABLET controls an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) and minimizes symptoms of low thyroid hormones like unknown weight gain, fatigue, sensitivity to the cold and many more. Thus, it helps in replacing the body's own natural thyroid hormone essential for maintaining both mental and physical health. However, THYROUP 75MCG TABLET should not be used for the treatment for weight loss or obesity.
Like all medicines, THYROUP 75MCG TABLET can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. Side effects are usually due to inappropriate dosage or irregular consumption. Some people may experience irregular heartbeat (palpitations), muscle spasm, headache, nervousness, irritability, sleeplessness, tremors, muscle weakness, increased appetite, weight loss, diarrhoea, heat intolerance, menstrual irregularities and skin rash. If taken in the right dosage as prescribed by your doctor, these unpleasant side effects are usually not seen. However, in case these symptoms become bothersome, speak with your doctor.
Foods like soybean flour, cottonseed meal, cabbage, cauliflower, walnuts, dietary fibre, calcium and calcium-fortified juices may affect the working of THYROUP 75MCG TABLET. Hence, avoid the intake of these foods within several hours of dosing if possible. THYROUP 75MCG TABLET should not be administered to patients with acute myocardial infarction and high blood pressure patients. So, close clinical monitoring of heart function is recommended before taking THYROUP 75MCG TABLET.
You are recommended not to consume alcohol along with THYROUP 75MCG TABLET to avoid unpleasant side-effects.
Only consume THYROUP 75MCG TABLET, if you are prescribed by a doctor. However, the need for levothyroxine may increase during pregnancy due to increased blood levels of oestrogen (female sex hormone) hence, monitoring of thyroid function should be done regularly both during and after pregnancy. In this case, thyroid hormone dose can be adjusted by your doctor.
Even during high dose levothyroxine therapy, the amount of THYROUP 75MCG TABLET passing into the breast milk during lactation is very low and therefore harmless. However, if you have any doubt consult a doctor.
THYROUP 75MCG TABLET does not interfere with your ability to drive.
THYROUP 75MCG TABLET can be taken in the prescribed dose as it does not affect the liver.
THYROUP 75MCG TABLET can be taken in the prescribed dose as it does not affects the kidney. However patient with adrenal gland complication or problem should consult a doctor before its intake.
