Changes In Brand Of Medicine For Thyroid, Is It A Problem?
In the morning, I am a woman aged 44 and in the past 5 years thyroid tumor surgery and taking medication for life. Then, the drug must be thyrak 100 ml and replace euthyrox 100ml. What is it, because the doctor thyrax 100. Because it is empty, in every pharmacy, my husband buys euthyrox, because I have been weak and weak.
Good afternoon Hulvaweri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The two brands of medicine that you are asking for basically contain the same drug, Levothyroxine Sodium, which is a synthetic thyroid hormone that is recommended for consumption by people who have conditions where the production of the hormone is low, for example, in your condition where the thyroid gland has been removed.
Even though these two drugs are the same, it is still advisable to consult first with the doctor who is treating you at this time, whether your doctor agrees or not with the use of these drugs because according to the procedure the brand drug changes must be based on the doctor's approval even though the contents are broadly the same , but there are some components that do not need to be considered by a doctor.
For now, you can try to consume the drug that you bought in accordance with the recommended use of the previous drug accompanied by repeated consultations with your doctor.
I hope this helps.
