FAQs

Q. Can I take Thyrofit during pregnancy?

Thyroid hormone is naturally present in the body and is therefore safe to take in pregnancy. In fact, it is very important that pregnant women or those planning to become pregnant have normal thyroid hormone levels to provide a suitable environment for the baby. If you are already taking thyroid hormone, your dose may be increased by your doctor. Hence, you may have to get your thyroid hormone and TSH levels measured once you know that you are pregnant. You should discuss the timing of thyroid blood tests with your doctor, but often thyroid tests are done every three months.

Q. Does Thyrofit interact with any other medications?

Thyrofit can interact with several medicines. Do not take any medicine without talking to your doctor.
