Sofia Vergara Encourages Individuals with Hypothyroidism to "Follow the Script"
Date:4/17/2013

NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (NYSE: ABBV) - Emmy-nominated actress Sofia Vergara is helping to raise awareness about the importance of diagnosing and treating hypothyroidism, a thyroid condition that affects millions of Americans, through a new campaign called "Follow the Script." The campaign, made possible by AbbVie, aims to educate individuals with hypothyroidism about the importance of being consistent with the treatment their doctor prescribes, and provides a "script" to ensure they consistently receive the medication prescribed by their doctor when they visit the pharmacy.

"In 2000, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had to have my thyroid removed. As a result, I have a hypothyroid condition and need to take medicine to treat it," said Vergara. "In my career, I'm known to ad lib and go off-script-but not when it comes to my health. I make sure to 'Follow the Script' so I get exactly what my doctor prescribed. This is so important to me, because you can't enjoy what you have without your health."

To help increase awareness about hypothyroidism, connect with the hypothyroidism community, and encourage others to take an active role in their health, Sofia shares her story at www.followthescriptcampaign.com. The "Follow the Script" website also features interactive polls, symptom and treatment information, helpful 'scripts' for speaking with your doctor and pharmacist, as well as stories and videos from other individuals with hypothyroidism. Visitors can also share their own experiences and learn how to become involved as a Synthroid® (levothyroxine sodium tablets, USP) patient volunteer.

"AbbVie is proud to work with Sofia Vergara and support this education campaign," said Maria Rivas , M.D., Vice President of Global Medical Af
