Overview Information on Levothyroxine Sodium
Pharmacist Tip
Do not take levothyroxine with food. It can interfere with the drug's effectiveness. Take it on an empty stomach with a full glass of water. This can help keep the tablet from getting stuck in your throat. The best time to take it is usually first thing in the morning.     
Levothyroxine is a replacement for a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. Levothyroxine is used to treat hypothyroidism, a condition in which the body doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone on its own. Doctors also prescribe levothyroxine to treat goiter (enlarged thyroid gland). Levothyroxine is also prescribed as an add-on therapy in the treatment of thyroid cancer.
