AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Thyroxine Sodium Tablets.
Thyroxine Sodium is a thyroid hormone medication. It replaces an underactive hormone usually produced by the thyroid gland.
This medication works by increasing an individual’s metabolic rate and also regulates the growth of body cells. The thyroxine sodium also regulates the function of the thyroid gland because it acts as an artificial thyroid therapy. It typically provides or replaces the lacking thyroid hormone because thyroid hormone is essential if the body must maintain healthy mental and physical activity.
This medication is eliminated in feces and via the urine.
