LEVOXYL®Boxed Warning (levothyroxine sodium)

WARNING: NOT FOR TREATMENT OF OBESITY OR FOR WEIGHT LOSS

  • Thyroid hormones, including LEVOXYL, either alone or with other therapeutic agents, should not be used for the treatment of obesity or for weight loss.
  • In euthyroid patients, doses within the range of daily hormonal requirements are ineffective for weight reduction.
  • Larger doses may produce serious or even life-threatening manifestations of toxicity, particularly when given in association with sympathomimetic amines such as those used for their anorectic effects [see Adverse Reactions (6), Drug Interactions (7.7), Overdosage (10)].
