Eltroxin 0.05mg (1000)

Eltroxin general information

What is Eltroxin used for?

Eltroxin tablets 50mcg are used to treat hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid, a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone (thyroxine) needed to regulate your body’s growth and metabolism. Hypothyroidism can be idiopathic (of unknown cause) or congenital as in the case of the autoimmune disease Hashimoto's thyroiditis, where the thyroid gland is destroyed by the immune system. Eltroxin tablets 50mcg are a replacement hormone to relieve the symptoms of hypothyroidism, including, tiredness, muscle weakness, cramps, feeling the cold, a slow heart rate, dry and flaky skin, hair loss, a deep husky voice and weight gain. Eltroxin tablets 50mcg are also used to treat juvenile myxoedema, which is a clinical condition of swelling under the skin and thickening of the skin that occurs in children who are deficient in thyroid hormone, usually due to their mother having a nutritional deficiency in iodine while in the womb, and who are physically and mentally underdeveloped.

How does Eltroxin work?

Eltroxin tablets 50mcg contain levothyroxine, a synthetic thyroid hormone that is identical to the naturally occurring thyroid hormone thyroxine or T4, produced by the thyroid gland. Levothyroxine is converted to the more active form of thyroid hormone (T3) which interacts with a specific receptor inside cells to stimulate proteins needed to manage and regulate a variety of processes including how the body regulates temperature, metabolises nutrients and controls growth and development. Thyroxine regulates the production of another hormone called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) which in turn controls how much thyroxine is produced. Eltroxin tablets 50mcg regulate TSH production in the same way and therefore substitutes for a lack of endogenous thyroxine (produced by the thyroid gland).

What does Eltroxin contain?

Eltroxin tablets 50mcg contain the active ingredient levothyroxine, which replaces the lack of endogenous thyroxine (produced by the thyroid gland) to regulate normal growth and metabolism.
