Thyronorm 125 mcg tablet is similar to the hormone produced by the thyroid gland. It is primarily used to treat Hypothyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce sufficient quantities of hormones. It is also used to treat certain other disorders associated with the thyroid gland.
Thyronorm (Thyroxine Sodium) is a derivative of levothyroxine which is administered to patients affected by underactive thyroid disease (also referred to as hypothyroidism) to replace the hormone that would usually be produced by a normally functioning thyroid.
Hypothyroidism may be caused by Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (a condition in which the immune system attacks the thyroid, preventing sufficient hormone production), or because of medicines or radiation therapy.
If left untreated, high cholesterol levels can occur, which could increase the risk of serious health problems. Treatment with this medicine aims to relieve the symptoms of this condition, resulting in lower levels of cholesterol, an improvement in the function of the digestive tract, better cognitive function and other benefits.
Alternative uses for this medicine include treatment or prevention of a goiter (a thyroid gland that has become enlarged).
Thyronorm 125mcg Tablet is a synthetic version of a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. It works by replacing the thyroid hormones that your thyroid gland cannot produce and relieves the symptoms of hypothyroidism (tiredness, weight gain, and depression).

1.Can I take Thyronorm during pregnancy?
Thyroid hormone is naturally present in the body and is therefore safe to take in pregnancy. In fact, it is very important that pregnant women or those planning to become pregnant have normal thyroid hormone levels to provide a suitable environment for the baby. If you are already taking thyroid hormone, your dose may need to be increased during pregnancy. Hence, you may have to get your thyroid hormone and TSH levels measured once you know that you are pregnant. You should discuss the timing of thyroid blood tests with your doctor, but often thyroid tests are done every trimester.
2.Does Thyronorm interact with any other medications?
Use of medications such as birth control pills, estrogen, testosterone, some medications for seizures, depression, and cholesterol, and supplements such as iron and calcium may require you to alter the dose of Thyronorm. It is therefore important that you let your doctor know about all the medications or supplements you are taking.
3.What is the dose for Thyronorm?
The dose is individualised on the basis of clinical response and biochemical tests. Regular monitoring of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and Thyronorm is recommended when starting therapy or changing the dose. Do not change the dose or stop the medicine without consulting your doctor.
4.Can I take Thyronorm with tea/coffee/food?
It is best to take Thyronorm on an empty stomach (ideally, first thing in the morning). No tea/coffee, food or milk should be taken 1 hour before and 2 hours after taking this medicine as it affects its absorption.
5.What happens if we consume too much iodine?
In some people, increased dietary iodine intake causes the thyroid gland to make excess of thyroid hormone, leading to a condition called iodine-induced hyperthyroidism. Too much of iodine can also cause thyroid underactivity, called hypothyroidism as excess iodine blocks the thyroid’s ability to produce the hormone.
6.Is Thyronorm a beta blocker?
No. Thyronorm is not a beta-blocker. It is a hormone synthesised by the thyroid gland present in the neck region. It maintains normal growth & development, body temperature & energy levels.
