Follow Provincial Law and Pharmacy Policy When Substituting Levothyroxine
You often hear myths about the "right way" to take levothyroxine...which can lead to unnecessary confusion and hardship for patients.
MYTH: Levothyroxine products should never be switched. It's okay to switch brands...if the levothyroxine products are "therapeutic equivalents."
The catch is that sometimes a patient's thyroid level gets slightly off-kilter when switching to a different manufacturer...and may lead to more lab work and dosage changes to maintain thyroid levels.
