ThyroidWA - Treatment Options

Treatment Options for Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid) Oroxine and Eutroxsig are available in the following strengths; 50 micrograms, 75 micrograms.

The human thyroid makes more T4 and less T3 than a pig’s thyroid gland. It may therefore be necessary to add some thyroxine to get the correct ratio of T4 and T3. The pharmacist can also supply a slow release form, but it may still be recommended to take the capsules twice a day. The tablets contain both T4 and T3, so it can be harder to make adjustments to the T3. Thyroxine (T4) is best absorbed on an empty stomach, which could be inconvenient if you tend to eat every two to three hours.

A healthy thyroid produces about 80 % of thyroxine (T4) and 15 % of triiodothyronine (T3).

Ashley39s Story - Stop The Thyroid Madness

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in Australia in 2002 and started on. Initially, I was taken off the 100mcg of Eutroxsig that I had been taking and put on far.

My psychiatrist did however acknowledge that many of her ‘bipolar’ patients also have thyroid conditions and that many of them do very well when taking lithium (which I have recently learned can lower cortisol and also cause the conversion of T4 to too much reverse T3) and levo-thyroxine at first and stay well on lithium and levo-thyroxine for many years only to suddenly become schizo-affective (which she decided had happened to me) requiring treatment with antipsychotic medication. I kid you not – she said that too me – perhaps not in those words but it was certainly implied.

In June 2003 Sigma was instructed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to reduce the shelf lives of Oroxine and Eutroxsig from 24 months to 12 months (with refrigeration).

This issue highlights the importance of not using Oroxine or Eutroxsig that is past its expiry date.

We have met with the Commercial Manager of Oroxine and Eutroxsig from Sigma since the introduction of refrigeration.
