Tirosint is a thyroid medication used to treat hypothyroidism and help manage thyroid cancer.
Levothyroxine is a thyroid hormone that plays a large role in bodily function by helping activate gene transcription and synthesis of messenger RNA and proteins. Adding this hormone to those not producing enough helps treat hypothyroidism and relieve its physiological symptoms.
This thyroid medication provides effective treatment for symptoms of hypothyroidism and is generally well-tolerated. Thanks to its ability to help manage thyroid hormone levels, Tirosint can also be useful at reducing the risk for cardiovascular issues as well as managing thyroid cancer.

Does Tirosint cause weight gain or loss?
Tirosint may lead to either weight gain or weight loss, although most fluctuations lead to a loss in weight. This is because a common symptom of hypothyroidism is water retention, a side effect which diminishes during treatment with Tirosint, leading to a reduction in your overall weight. Tirosint may also cause changes in your appetite which can lead to fluctuations in your weight.

You can take other medications during treatment with Tirosint, but for many you may need to wait 4 hours before or after taking your dose to avoid absorption issues. These medications include calcium or iron supplements, antacids, or gastric acid reducers. Speak with your doctor about all the medications you take to ensure the best results of all your treatments.
