Thyronorm (category A drug) is safe during pregnancy. The requirement of the drug actually increases during pregnancy. It does not reduce the body weight. Long term use can cause osteoporosis and hair fall; interactions with some other drugs is seen. Calcium and iron supplements that are taken during pregnancy should be taken either 4 hours before or 4 hours after taking Thyronorm. The medication should be continued throughout life with proper dosage adjustments from time to time.Take care.
