Inform The Patient Of The Following Information To Aid In The Safe And Effective Use Of Euthyrox: 

Dosing and Administration

  • Instruct patients to take EUTHYROX only as directed by their healthcare provider.
  • Instruct patients to take EUTHYROX as a single dose, preferably on an empty stomach, one-half to one hour before breakfast.
  • Inform patients that agents such as iron and calcium supplements and antacids can decrease the absorption of levothyroxine. Instruct patients not to take EUTHYROX tablets within 4 hours of these agents.
  • Instruct patients to notify their healthcare provider if they are pregnant or breastfeeding or are thinking of becoming pregnant while taking EUTHYROX.

Important Information

  • Inform patients that it may take several weeks before they notice an improvement in symptoms.
  • Inform patients that the levothyroxine in EUTHYROX is intended to replace a hormone that is normally produced by the thyroid gland. Generally, replacement therapy is to be taken for life.
  • Inform patients that EUTHYROX should not be used as a primary or adjunctive therapy in a weight control program.
  • Instruct patients to notify their healthcare provider if they are taking any other medications, including prescription and over-the-counter preparations.
  • Instruct patients to notify their physician of any other medical conditions they may have, particularly heart disease, diabetes, clotting disorders, and adrenal or pituitary gland problems, as the dose of medications used to control these other conditions may need to be adjusted while they are taking EUTHYROX. If they have diabetes, instruct patients to monitor their blood and/or urinary glucose levels as directed by their physician and immediately report any changes to their physician. If patients are taking anticoagulants, their clotting status should be checked frequently.
  • Instruct patients to notify their physician or dentist that they are taking EUTHYROX prior to any surgery.

Adverse Reactions

  • Instruct patients to notify their healthcare provider if they experience any of the following symptoms: rapid or irregular heartbeat, chest pain, shortness of breath, leg cramps, headache, nervousness, irritability, sleeplessness, tremors, change in appetite, weight gain or loss, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive sweating, heat intolerance, fever, changes in menstrual periods, hives or skin rash, or any other unusual medical event.
  • Inform patients that partial hair loss may occur rarely during the first few months of EUTHYROX therapy, but this is usually temporary.
