Follow Your State Laws and Pharmacy Policy When Substituting Levothyroxine

You often hear myths about the "right way" to take levothyroxine...that can lead to unnecessary confusion and hardship for patients.

MYTH: Levothyroxine products should never be switched. It's okay to switch brands and generics...if levothyroxine products are "AB-rated."

The catch is that sometimes a patient's thyroid level gets slightly off-kilter when switching to a different manufacturer...and may lead to more lab work and dosage changes to maintain thyroid levels.
