What is Eltroxin?
Eltroxin is a multi-dose branded treatment used to treat hypothyroidism. Eltroxin works to combat the common symptoms of a thyroid hormone deficiency. So it helps to alleviate fatigue, tiredness, and low moods, as well as stopping you from gaining weight and preventing depression.
How does Eltroxin work?
Hypothyroidism is caused by the thyroid gland not producing enough of a hormone called thyroxine. The hormone in Eltroxin, levothyroxine, makes up the thyroxine deficit, and so improves your metabolism and gives you more energy.
It gives you more energy by introducing a hormone called levothyroxine to your system. Levothyroxine works to improve your metabolism by filling in and covering for the lack of thyroxine.
If you have hyperthyroidism, you’ll probably already know thyroxine as the hormone your body doesn’t produce enough of. When the thyroid gland fails to produce enough of this hormone, our metabolisms don’t work very well and cause our bodies all sorts of problems which can have a detrimental effect to your quality of life; that’s why it’s so important to seek effective treatment.
What doses of Eltroxin are there?
After a consultation with our clinician, you will be prescribed a dose of Eltroxin based upon your individual needs as determined by the results of your blood test. Evidence of a recent blood test will need to be provided to us before we provide any treatment for hyperthyroidism. Alternatively, you can upload a copy of a previous prescription for hyperthyroidism treatment. Eltroxin comes in doses of 25mg, 50mg and 100mg.
