Hello and thanks for the query.
There is no interaction of lucentis injection with eltroxin tablet.
There are different brand names available as substitute for the eltroxin.
Common brand names include Thyrax, Euthyrox, Levaxin, L-thyroxine, Eltroxin and Thyrax Duotab in Europe; Thyrox in South Asia; Eutirox, Tirosint, Levoxyl and Synthroid in North and South XXXXXXX
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck.
Thanks
