Liothyronine Sodium

Drug Info for liothyronine sodium

Liothyronine is used to treat hypothyroidism (a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone). Liothyronine is also used to treat a goiter (an enlarged thyroid gland) and to test for hyperthyroidism (a condition where the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone). Liothyronine is in a class of medications called thyroid agents. It works by supplying the thyroid hormones normally produced by the body. Currently, there is not enough evidence from clinical studies to support the use of liothyronine, alone or in combination with other medications, as the first choice of therapy to treat hypothyroidism.

Take your medicine as directed. Your dose may need to be changed several times to find what works best for you.

Missed dose: Take a dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, wait until then and take a regular dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up for a missed dose.

Store the medicine in a closed container at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, and direct light.

This medicine is not right for everyone. Do not use it if you had an allergic reaction to liothyronine, or if you have uncorrected adrenal gland problems. Do not use this medicine to treat obesity or to lose weight.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney disease, liver disease, heart or blood vessel disease, diabetes, blood clotting problems, adrenal gland problems, or pituitary gland problems.

This medicine may cause the following problems:Heart and heart rhythm problemsMyxedema coma, which may be life-threateningAdrenal gland problemsLow bone mineral density

Do not stop using this medicine without asking your doctor, even if you feel well. This medicine will replace a hormone that is normally produced by your thyroid gland. You may have to take this medicine for the rest of your life.
