Hypothyroidism is treated with thyroid hormone medication, taken as a pill. Levothyroxine is the drug of choice. It is a synthetic (laboratory-made) form of T4 that is identical to the T4 the thyroid naturally makes. Levothyroxine comes in brand-name and generic versions. Changing the manufacturer of the medication could alter the amount of medicine your body gets; so preferably, try to consistently take the same dose, made by the same company at all times. Often, this might be resolved by using a branded levothyroxine product.

Most people need thyroid hormone replacement for life. If the brand or dosage needs to be changed, you should have blood tests for TSH done again. Your dose will be adjusted based on your TSH tests. Over time, doses of thyroid hormone that are too high can lead to bone loss, abnormal heart function, and abnormal heart rhythms. Doses that are too low may not relieve your symptoms. Dose adjustment may be necessary over your lifetime, including during pregnancy. You can discuss dose changes during your regular check-ups with your doctor.
