Precautions

What should you know before you take Synthroid (Levothyroxine)?

Synthroid (Levothyroxine) has what is referred to as a narrow therapeutic index. This means that there is a fine line between undertreating and overtreating your condition. This also means that it is imperative to follow all instructions given by your physician as failing to do so can either continue to precipitate your ongoing condition or produce potentially dangerous adverse events. 

Patients with existing diabetes can expect Synthroid (Levothyroxine) to worsen their ability to control sugar levels. Most patients will require more insulin to regulate their blood sugar after starting Synthroid (Levothyroxine). It is very important for these patients to regularly check their blood sugar after starting Synthroid (Levothyroxine) and after each potential subsequent change in their dose of Synthroid (Levothyroxine) to reduce risks of hyperglycemia (or hypoglycemia if there is a dose reduction). 

If you are on a supratherapeutic (too high) dose for an extended period of time it could put you at risk for decreased bone mineral density. Particularly in post menopausal women, you should ensure you are having your thyroid levels checked routinely to ensure that your dose requirements have not changed.

Do you increase Synthroid (Levothyroxine) if TSH is high?

Generally, if your thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is elevated beyond a certain range, your physician will increase your Synthroid (Levothyroxine) dose. TSH is produced by your body in response to low levels of circulating thyroid hormone but given that your body has a dysfunction/inability to produce more thyroid hormone the TSH can accumulate given there is not an adequate response made by your body so additional supplementation is required.
