Eltroxin and thyronorm are two brands of same medication, Thyroxine.It seems to be a medicine that people have great results with and very few side effects. For many health concerns involving the thyroid, this medicine will have to be used daily for the rest of their life.Without it, the body wont be able to create enough of the thyroid hormone. The doctor will need to fully assess current production levels to determine the dose of this medicine to offer.A very small number of patients experience severe side effects such as changes to their vision, breathing, or heart rate. Make sure you dont ignore such side effects as they can be detrimental to your health.
