my dr. Told me to have eltroxin 50 mcg once a day... Should this have negative side effect on the fetal???
Eltroxin (levothyroxine) has been assigned to pregnancy category A by the FDA. Levothyroxine is a naturally occurring hormone, normally present in both maternal and fetal circulation. Levothyroxine, in replacement doses, is not expected to adversely affect the fetus. On the contrary, hypothyroidism may lead to poor pregnancy outcome. Thyroid replacement therapy should be maintained during pregnancy.
