You need synthroid (thyroxine): If you have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and a physician has placed you on synthroid, (thyroxine) this is a lifelong replacement therapy. If the diagnosis was correct, your thyroid can no longer produce enough thyroid hormone and without the continuous thyroid replacement therapy (synthroid) you will eventually experience all the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism.
