When you first start taking Synthroid, your doctor will usually test your TSH levelsi every 6 to 8 weeks. Try to be patient during this time. Because your thyroid hormone needs are very precise, your doctor may need to make small adjustments to find the dose that’s right for you. And it may take several weeks before you notice Synthroid is working, and for your thyroid levels to adjust to the correct range.

SYNTHROID® (levothyroxine sodium) tablets, for oral use is a prescription, man-made thyroid hormone that is used to treat a condition called hypothyroidism in adults and children, including infants. It is meant to replace a hormone that is usually made by your thyroid gland. Generally, thyroid replacement treatment is to be taken for life. SYNTHROID should not be used to treat noncancerous growths or enlargement of the thyroid in patients with normal iodine levels, or in cases of temporary hypothyroidism caused by inflammation of the thyroid gland (thyroiditis).
