Thyronorm is a brand of thyroxine sodium and is available in three strengths which help in fine dosage adjustment and therefore offers both convenience and superior profile.Thyroxine sodium I.P. tablets, round, colour coded, debossed with potency 25 mcg, 50 mcg or 100 mcg, supplied in amber coloured bottles of 100 tablets. Each uncoated tablet contains Thyroxine Sodium I.P., equivalent to anhydrous Thyroxine Sodium, 25 mcg or 50 mcg or 100 mcg, 125 mcg. - being prescribed for this disease. You can also find ayurvedic medicines to treat it as there are several ayurvedic and herbal things can be appied to cure the above diseases like kanchanara - Bauhinia veriegata (purple mountain ebony) is specific for proper functioning of thyroid. Among the other herbs jatamansi and Brahmi guggulu and shilajita are also useful. gokshura, punarnava are useful herbs.

Hypothyroidism: Too little thyroid hormone production.

Hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism is the most common form of thyroid disease. It occurs when the thyroid does not produce enough thyroid hormone-causing the body use energy more slowly than it should. Symptoms may include feeling sluggish, cold, depressed, forgetful, experiencing dry hair and skin, constipation, and increased menstrual flow.

Hyperthyroidism refers to excess secretion of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. It is also called "thyrotoxicosis". One common type of hyperthyroidism is Graves' disease, which is an autoimmune disease.

Hyperthyroidism: Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid produces too much thyroid hormone and makes the body use more energy than it should. Symptoms may include nervousness, irritability, shaky hands, increased perspiration, warm skin, thinning hair, weight loss, decreased menstruation, eye changes, and weak leg muscles. The diagnosis of hypothyroidism is made by measuring blood levels of TSH, T3 and T4. In hypothyroidism at least one of these tests is always abnormal (usually high TSH). You do not have hypothyroidism if these tests are normal.

Treatment of hypothyroidism is directed towards replacing thyroid hormone (eltroxin, thyronorm, thyrox), so as to normalize the blood level. Treatment provides great benefit, and results in complete relief of symptoms over 2 to 3 months. However, most often treatment has to be life long. It is safe and virtually free of side effects. The diagnosis of hyperthyroidism is made by testing the blood level of the thyroid hormones (T3, T4, TSH) Treatment for hyperthyroidism is highly effective and generally consists of tablets (carbimazole, PTU), often for 12-24 months. Many patients may be advised to undergo radioactive iodine treatment, which is also a simple and safe treatment modality. It is particularly useful in those who have relapsed after a course of antithyroid drugs. Surgery of the thyroid gland is another option, although it is not commonly used now for treating hyperthyroidism. Source :……

Dear Shubhra goel, Your friend is right, thyronorm is a medicine for the treatment of hypothyroid also called under active thyroid. If you have been diagnosed with hyperthyroid (over active thyroid) I would not recommend taking it. Kind Regards

Thyronorm 50 is a drug indicated for hypothyroidism. You should avoid taking that drug.

Treatment of hyperthyroid includes medications which are known as beta blockers(eg. Propranolol). Treatment differs a lot with the type of hyperthyroids and therefore it is to be taken after a proper diagnosis of your case. So, go for diagnostic tests / examinations to assure your type and go for another medical practitioner.
