Brand of thyroid med: Levoxyl is a brand name of levothyroxine, a synthetic form of thyroid hormone, specifically t4. It is used primarily to treat hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid condition. It is considered thyroid replacement for when the thyroid gland doesn't make adequate thyroid hormone for the body's metabolic needs. There are some other, less common uses for levoxyl.
