Is the Actalin OTC thyroid support effective in treatment of low thyroid levels?
Question: Do you agree with another colleague here that Actalin OTC thyroid support is pretty much a waste of money, effort and hope? Thanks for your help. XXXXXXX W.
I follow your question.
The recommended treatment for the treatment of hypothyroidism ('low or under-active thyroid') is levo thyroxine. I understand your point about preferring to stay on one brand such as synthroid.
So Actalin is not recommended for the treatment of your thyroid condition. To the best of my knowledge of published medical literature in the thyroid context, I am not aware of any evidence that Actalin is safe and effective for the treatment of an underactive thyroid.
Thyroid experts worldwide typically recommend adhering to one brand of levo thyroxine. Synthroid is certainly one such brand name medication.
It is important to receive consistent batch-to-batch active medicinal ingredient. Brand name medications are expected to maintain this standard.
With generic levo thyroxine, this cannot always be guaranteed, as it can come from different manufacturers, as opposed to being manufactured by the same uniform production method.
