What Is NP Thyroid?

NP Thyroid (thyroid tablets) is a natural preparation derived from porcine thyroid glands indicated to treat hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone) and to treat or prevent goiter (enlarged thyroid gland), and in the management of thyroid cancer.

What Are Side Effects of NP Thyroid?

Common side effects of NP Thyroid include:

  • hair loss during the first few months of treatment

This side effect is usually temporary as your body adjusts to the medication.

Dosage for NP Thyroid

The dosage of NP Thyroid is determined by the indication and is individualized based on patient response and laboratory findings.

What Drugs, Substances, or Supplements Interact with NP Thyroid?

NP Thyroid may interact with oral anticoagulants, insulin or oral diabetes drugs, cholestyramine, and estrogen and oral contraceptives. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use.

NP Thyroid During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant before using NP Thyroid; thyroid hormones do not readily cross the placental barrier and NP Thyroid is expected to be safe for use during pregnancy. Minimal amounts of NP Thyroid pass into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
