My wife been diagonsed with hypothyroidism.She has been prescribed for sodium thyroxine. We are looking for that medicine from vegetarian source ?

It is vegetarian: All sodium levothyroxine is derived from vegetarian sources so no need to look any further. The only animal-derived thryoid medicines are thyroid glandular extracts like Armour Thyroid and nature-throid. Most who are hypothyroid also benefit from liothyronine, which is also vegetarian- see http://thyroid.About.Com/od/t3treatment/tp/t4-t3-thyroid-treatment.Htm & http://bit.Ly/15k26u8 for more info. ...Read more

Thyroxine sodium vs levothyroxine. Which one is more effective?

Thyroxine sodium vs levothyroxine. Which one is more effective?

Sometimes pharmacists switch you to save $. ...Read more

3-5 weeks or so: 3-4 weeks is common before ssris show clinical effectiveness. Usually a 2-4 week follow up after initial prescription is planned. If symptoms remain severe by that time, worsen, or are out of control, this should be promptly brought to the attention of the prescribing physician. Combination meds and psyhotherapy by a psychologist is often better than either alone. ...Read more

Not sure: Not sure about all those ingredients in our shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and creams. I presume they all end up in our waters when we shower.

Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.

Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.

Not bio-available: The short answer is that calcium Fluoride is so extremely insoluble as to be considered unusable by your body. Sodium and stannous fluorides are able to be broken down and then the fluorides can enter into and bond with the enamel. Enamel is made of a ring of ions and the Fluoride substitutes in the center to form a more stable ring. This new "ring" is more resistant to decay. ...Read more
