Have you been prescribed Levothyroxine and wondering about the transition from intravenous (IV) to oral (PO) administration? Let us guide you through the process.

What is Levothyroxine?

Levothyroxine is a synthetic form of thyroid hormone that is used to treat hypothyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones. It is commonly prescribed to help regulate thyroid function and metabolism.

Transitioning from IV to PO

When moving from intravenous to oral administration of Levothyroxine, it is important to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions carefully. Your doctor will likely start you on a lower dose of oral medication and gradually increase it over time as needed.

Be sure to take the oral medication at the same time each day, preferably in the morning on an empty stomach. It is important to be consistent with your dosing schedule to ensure the medication works effectively.

If you have any questions or concerns about transitioning from IV to PO Levothyroxine, do not hesitate to speak with your healthcare provider for guidance.

Consulting a healthcare provider

Before making any changes to your medication, it is important to consult with a healthcare provider. They can provide guidance on the proper dosage and any potential side effects. Your provider will also monitor your progress to ensure the medication is working effectively.
