Introduction

Thyrowin 25mcg Tablet is a medicine used to treat high cholesterol. This medicine helps by lowering "bad" cholesterol (LDL). Cholesterol is a fatty substance that builds up in your blood vessels and causes narrowing, which may lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Most people with high cholesterol do not feel ill, but if you stop taking this medicine, your condition could get worse. This may lead to your cholesterol levels rising up again and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Common side effects of this medicine include chest pain, an irregular heartbeat, sweating, diarrhea, headache, or skin rash. If you experience any such side effect that does not go away or get worse, you should let your doctor know.

Before taking this medicine it is better to let your doctor know about all the other medicines that are prescribed to you. This medicine may interfere with the working of other medicines such as blood sugar controlling medicines.

How Thyrowin Tablet works

Dextrothyroxine is a lipid modifying agent that acts in the liver to increase breakdown (catabolism) of LDL (a type of bad cholesterol) to smaller sub units. This leads to increased excretion of cholesterol and bile acids via the biliary route into the feces, with a resulting reduction in cholesterol and LDL.
