fairs at AbbVie, the makers of Synthroid. "Hypothyroidism is a complex condition that can be managed with the right tools and information. The hope and aim of this campaign is to increase awareness about hypothyroidism and empower patients to engage in dialogue and work with their healthcare providers throughout their treatment."
Thyroid conditions affect an estimated 30 million individuals in the U.S.[i], and are especially prevalent among women. Approximately one in every eight women will develop a thyroid condition in her lifetime[ii]. Hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone, can be managed with levothyroxine[iii].
"Your thyroid can affect the way you feel, look and sound," said Jordan L. Geller , M.D., Vergara's endocrinologist. "I work with my patients to ensure they understand their hypothyroidism diagnosis and the medication and dose that are right for them."
The United States Food and Drug Administration has determined that some, but not all, levothyroxine products are interchangeable. A levothyroxine product that is not therapeutically equivalent may not have the same effect on a patient's thyroid hormone levels. However, levothyroxine products that are classified as therapeutically equivalent can be substituted with a physician's approval[iv].
SYNTHROID® (levothyroxine sodium tablets, USP) is a prescription synthetic thyroid hormone that is used to treat a condition called hypothyroidism. It is intended to replace a hormone that is normally produced by your thyroid gland. Generally, thyroid replacement therapy is to be taken for life.
