Hi. Wife, 50 yrs old prescribed Eltroxin 50 mg for under active thyroid by her GP. Should we get 2nd opinion from a specialist Thanks? In brief: Not necessary
Hello, Seeing a specialist is not usually necessary to diagnose and treat an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) and GP’s usually are perfectly competent to manage hypothyroidism. Eltroxin (levothyroxine) replaces thyroid hormone normally produced by the thyroid.
It’s important to take it on an empty stomach daily and periodic monitoring is needed to determine if the dosing is correct. Good dayGENERAL PRACTITIONERS
