Thyroid 

Indication

Desiccated thyroid is used to replace thyroid hormone for people whose thyroid glands do not make sufficient amounts (Hypothyroidism). Thyroid hormone is necessary for increasing the metabolic rate of body tissues.

Desiccated thyroid is used to treat hypothyroidism (low blood levels of thyroid hormone) and myxedema (the body's changes associated with prolonged low blood levels of thyroid hormone).

Thyroid may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Thyroid may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Thyroid may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Thyroid for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Thyroid, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Thyroid without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Thyroid to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Thyroid if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Thyroid 

Dosage

The dose of desiccated thyroid varies according to a person's needs. For adults, the dose can range from 30 mg to 300 mg daily. For children, the dose is usually based on body weight.

Your doctor will order blood tests to be done 4 to 6 weeks after starting desiccated thyroid to determine the amount of thyroid hormone in your blood. Based on the results of these tests, the doctor may increase your dose until the required response occurs.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Desiccated thyroid should be taken once daily at the same time each day (usually in the morning before breakfast).

Desiccated thyroid must be taken on a daily basis to be effective. Thyroid may take several weeks to have a noticeable effect on your condition. Replacement thyroid hormone therapy usually needs to be taken for life.

It is important to take Thyroid exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store the medication at room temperature and keep it out of reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Thyroid 

Side Effects

Many medications can cause side effects. A side effect is an unwanted response to a medication when it is taken in normal doses. Side effects can be mild or severe, temporary or permanent.

The side effects listed below are not experienced by everyone who takes Thyroid. If you are concerned about side effects, discuss the risks and benefits of this medication with your doctor.

The following side effects have been reported by at least 1% of people taking Thyroid. Many of these side effects can be managed, and some may go away on their own over time.

Contact your doctor if you experience these side effects and they are severe or bothersome. Your pharmacist may be able to advise you on managing side effects.

  • abdominal cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • headache
  • heat intolerance
  • sleep difficulties
  • weight loss

Although most of these side effects listed below don't happen very often, they could lead to serious problems if you do not seek medical attention.

  • excessive sweating
  • fast or irregular heartbeat
  • Fever

Some people may experience side effects other than those listed. Check with your doctor if you notice any symptom that worries you while you are taking Thyroid.

Contraindications

Do not take this medication if you:

  • have certain uncorrected problems of the adrenal glands
  • have untreated thyrotoxicosis (too much thyroid hormone in the blood)

Thyroid 

Precautions

There may be an interaction between desiccated thyroid and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Thyroid. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Thyroid 

Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should take Thyroid.

Diabetes: Desiccated thyroid may cause blood sugar to increase. High blood sugar may occur, glucose tolerance may change, and diabetes may worsen. If you have diabetes, monitor your blood sugar closely and talk to your doctor about any abnormalities.

Hair loss in children: Some children may lose some of their hair in the first few months of treatment with thyroid hormone. This is usually a temporary effect and the hair normally grows back over time.

Heart disease: Starting desiccated thyroid may cause the heart to work harder than usual. For this reason, people with Angina or other heart disease should discuss with their doctor how Thyroid may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Thyroid, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Pregnancy: Supplemental thyroid hormone is safe to use during pregnancy.

Breast-feeding: Minimal amounts of thyroid hormone pass into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking desiccated thyroid, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
