What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Synthroid (levothyroxine) is a replacement for a hormone that is normally produced by your thyroid gland to regulate the body's energy and metabolism. Synthroid is given when the thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. Generic Synthroid is a cost-saving medication prescribed by medical physicians worldwide.
Synthroid may also be marketed as: Eltroxin, Levothroid, Levothyroxine, Levoxyl.
*Synthroid® is manufactured by Abbott Laboratories.
