LIOTHYRONINE SODIUM

Liothyronine Sodium Description

Liothyronine Sodium is a man-made version of triiodothyronine (also known as T3), one of the hormones made by the thyroid gland. Liothyronine is used to treat an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Low thyroid levels can occur naturally or when the thyroid gland is injured by radiation, medications or removed surgically. It is important to have adequate levels of thyroid hormone in your bloodstream to maintain normal mental and physical activity.

The thyroid gland produces hormones which regulate the body's metabolic rate as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development and bone maintenance. Underactive thyroid disease is a common disorder. With hypothyroidism, your thyroid gland does not make enough of the thyroid hormone your body need

Other Uses for Liothyronine Sodium

Liothyronine Sodium generic may also be prescribed to treat a goiter, which is an enlargement of the thyroid gland. A goiter may be a temporary problem that will remedy itself over time without medical intervention, or a symptom of another, possibly severe, thyroid condition that requires medical attention. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Before Liothyronine Sodium is Prescribed

Tell your doctor if you have heart disease, angina (chest pain), coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, diabetes, or problems with your pituitary or adrenal glands before you take Liothyronine Sodium.
