What is Tiromel?
Tiromel belongs to a group of medicines called thyroid hormones. It replaces a hormone (T3) that is normally produced by the thyroid gland to regulate the body's energy and metabolism. It is usually given to treat hypothyroidism when the thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone. Some people may also use the medication to lower thyroid function in certain diseases such as goiter and Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
How is Tiromel used?
Tiromel is usually taken orally once daily in the morning or as directed by a doctor. The tablets can be taken with or without food but should be taken with some fluids. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy. To be sure the medication is helping the patient's condition, frequent blood tests may be prescribed by the doctor.
Patients using Tiromel may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Hair loss
- Muscle cramps
- Excessive sweating
- Weight loss
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Menstrual changes
- Chest pain
- Irregular heartbeat
- Muscle weakness
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
Tiromel is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
