You are taking levothyroxine tablets -- Levoxyl®, Synthroid®, Unithroid®, or generic levothyroxine -- and you still don't feel well...and you also have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, ulcers, celiac disease, or another digestive or gastrointestinal condition.
WHAT COULD BE GOING ON?
Your condition is negatively affecting your ability to absorb your levothyroxine tablets.
Most doctors recommend that patients who have a digestive or gastrointestinal health condition start with or switch to Tirosint® or Tirosint®-SOL. Research has shown that the capsule and oral solution forms of levothyroxine are much better absorbed in patients who have conditions that cause absorption difficulties.
