UNITHROID is the first FDA-approved levothyroxine sodium treatment for hypothyroidism.1,2 Below are just a few of many reasons why more and more healthcare providers are turning to UNITHROID for their patients with hypothyroidism.
UNITHROID has been consistently manufactured in the same state-of-the-art facility since it was first introduced more than
UNITHROID is manufactured exclusively in New York, which helps ensure consistency and quality of the product.3
UNITHROID contains no ingredient made from a gluten-containing grain (wheat, barley, or rye).3
UNITHROID production adheres to Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP)
The CGMP is an FDA initiative that helps ensure the quality of drug products. The regulations make sure that a product has the ingredients and strength it claims to, and is safe.4
When treating hypothyroidism, it can be important to know that your patients are receiving the exact same medication you prescribed with each and every refill.
In fact, ATA/AACE Guidelines recommend that patients should be maintained on the same levothyroxine preparation. The guidelines also state that patients should have their serum TSH retested after 4 to 8 weeks if they are switched to a different levothyroxine preparation.5
Prescribing UNITHROID by name—and writing dispense as written (DAW)†—provides assurance that patients consistently receive the same levothyroxine preparation with every refill instead of various generic substitutes.
UNITHROID has been manufactured for more than 20 years with no recalls, reformulations, or gaps in availability.3
Because levothyroxine has a narrow therapeutic range, small differences in absorption can result in subclinical or clinical hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.6
Because levothyroxine has a narrow therapeutic index, careful dosage titration is necessary to avoid over- or under-treatment.1
When managing hypothyroidism, consistency matters, from taking medicine the same way, every day, to making sure patients always receive the exact treatment you prescribe.
