REVIEW L-Thyroxine is a synthetically prepared levo isomer of thyroxine, the major hormone secreted from the thyroid gland and it acts like the endogenous thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4, a tetra-iodinated tyrosine derivative). L-Thyroxine is used alone or in combination with antithyroid agents to treat hypothyroidism, goiter, chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, myxedema coma, and stupor.
