Desiccated thyroid is a medication used to treat hypothyroidism which results from low thyroid hormone levels.

This thyroid medication helps improve your body’s energy and metabolism by providing missing thyroid hormones necessary for regulating these functions. Desiccated thyroid may also be used to treat or prevent goiter, which is when your thyroid gland becomes enlarged.

Uses and Dosage

The thyroid dose prescribed will vary depending on the individual being treated. Read packaging labels carefully and follow all your doctor’s instructions.

  • Swallow tablet whole
  • Take on an empty stomach
  • For hypothyroidism, adults usually take 30mg once daily
  • Doses are increased 15mg every 2 to 3 weeks until desired effect is achieved
  • Store at room temperature away from moisture and children

Side Effects

Desiccated thyroid may cause some side effects while it helps balance your hormones. Speak with your doctor for more information regarding any symptoms you may encounter when taking thyroids.

Common thyroid side effects:

  • Temporary hair loss (especially in children)

How long does it take for desiccated thyroid to work?

Desiccated thyroid doses take roughly 2 or 3 weeks to reach peak efficacy in your system. However, it may take longer for your symptoms to improve at first because you will start at an initial dose of 15mg before increasing to an effective dose. Once you reach this dose, your symptoms should improve within 2 or 3 weeks.

When should I take desiccated thyroid?

You should take thyroid hormones on an empty stomach, so ideally your dose should be taken in the morning when you wake up. Make sure you swallow the table whole with a glass of water. Wait 30 to 60 minutes before eating a meal.
