What is Thyro-Tab?

Thyro-Tabs (levothyroxine) treat hypothyroidism. This medication is a synthetic hormone used as a replacement therapy in conditions in which the thyroid gland is not producing an adequate amount of hormones. Synthetic thyroxine (levothyroxine) works much like the naturally occurring thyroxine to maintain normal metabolism in the body. Proper levels of thyroid hormones have significant beneficial effects on brain, heart, muscle, nerve, and kidney function.

For:

Dogs (Used in cats in certain circumstances)

How it works?

Levothyroxine provides thyroid replacement therapy to pets with hypothyroidism or other thyroid conditions due to low circulating thyroid hormone.

Storage:

  • Allow plenty of water for the pet to drink. Levothyroxine may be given directly or placed in your pet's food.

Cautions

Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not use in animals with a known hypersensitivity to levothyroxine. Frequent blood tests to measure thyroid hormone levels may be necessary during treatment. Do not use if your pet has ever had thyrotoxicosis or an uncontrolled adrenal gland problem. Use with caution if your pet has anemia, diabetes, heart disease, or pituitary or adrenal glands problems. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is currently receiving insulin. Inform your veterinarian of any and all medications your pet may be taking before starting treatment. In the case of a missed dose, give it as soon as you remember or wait until it is time to give the next dose. Do not give a double dose.

Side Effects

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Levothyroxine and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (swelling of the lips, face, or tongue; difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; or hives). Call your veterinarian if your pet develops any of these serious side effects: sleep problems; personality changes; fever; appetite changes, weight changes. Less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to use Levothyroxine if your pet experiences: cough; loss of appetite; dizziness, drowsiness; sleep problems; dry mouth; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea; itching or rash. Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.
