What THIARX 50MCG is used for?

  • THIARX 50MCG tablets are used to replace the thyroxine that your thyroid gland cannot produce and prevent the symptoms of hypothyroidism
  • Thyroxine is a hormone which is produced naturally in the body by the thyroid gland which controls how much energy your body uses. When the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroxine (a condition known as hypothyroidism), many of the body’s functions slow down
