My question is I take thyroxine medication daily
Will be traveling to Las Vegas Nevada US in a few days
I would like to know the name of my medication in USA
In case I ran out while I am there
Here in Australia is Thyroxine or Oroxine
Thyroid meds in USA come in generic or brand name forms. If your med is generic, you may locate same generic drug in USA. Safest to make quick call to your doctor, if they are a helpfull practice, they will help you figure this out. Also, I can't recall if USA & Australia use same systems of pharmacy measure. You may try internet lookup medication by (drug name, prescribed/compared in USA). Can you get enough refill of med, before leaving home, to cover entire trip. When traveling I always keep my meds in correct bottles and with me.
Your best bet is to talk with the doctor that prescribed the medicine. I'm not familiar with Australian law, but they may be able to give you extra pills for your trip. They'll definitely be able to tell you what your options are. I've heard of thyroxine, so it's most likely called the same thing here.
