Hello and thanks for the query.
OROXINE is a thyroid hormone and is given in patients of hypothyroidism while Graves disease is hyperthyroidism where excess of thyroid hormones are being produced.
So Oroxine is not given in graves disease.
I hope you get the answer
Any further query is welcome
Best of luck
