Creating a morning routine can help you remember to take Synthroid the same way every day.
Check out these helpful tips:
Keep Synthroid beside something you see or use when you wake up in the morning. It could be by your phone, toothbrush, or keys.
If you walk your dog every morning, place a sticky note near the leash. If you read the morning news on your smartphone or tablet, place a sticky note on it.
Use a weekly pillbox to help you remember whether you've taken your Synthroid that day.
Turn your medicine bottle or weekly pillbox upside down after you take Synthroid. Before going to sleep, turn your bottle right side up so that you know to take Synthroid in the morning.
You can also use the Synthroid Pill Reminder to get daily reminders via text or email to take your Synthroid every morning. Sign Up for Pill & Refill Reminders.

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).
