Indications

Levotiron is indicated for use alone or in combination with antithyroid agents to treat hypothyroidism, goiter, chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, myxedema coma, and stupor.
Levotiron is the same as the hormone thyroxine, which is usually produced naturally by the thyroid gland.
Where this does not happen, Levotiron tablets are given to replace this thyroxine.

- If you suffer from diabetes mellitus (lack of insulin or reduced effectiveness of insulin);
- If you suffer from diabetes insipidus (excretion of large amounts of very dilute urine);
