tells me that levothyroxine and levothyroxine sodium are exactly the same and they only cover levothytroxine sodium (which should meet my requirements. My doctor's Rx is for levothyroxine 137mcg tablet. I had Papillary thyroid carcinoma and in the last years I've experienced Hypothyroidism, post ablative. Can you please clarify for me if there is or not a difference between levothyroxine and levothyroxine sodium? Thank you in advance. Nora
What in the heck is your insurance companies problem? They've got an idiot sitting in front of a monitor. Levothyroxine is levothryroxine sodium, its sodium is its last name. When you take that prescription in what you will get is levothyroxine sodium because that's the only thing there is.
