Study suggests that a liquid LT4 formulation can be ingested directly at breakfast

This observation is of considerable clinical relevance, since non-adherence to LT4 therapy requirements is more likely to cause variability in serum TSH concentrations."

Realturbo, liquid thyroxine is rarely prescribed as it is very expensive compared to Levothyroxine tablets. It's only likely to be prescribed to patients allergic to the fillers in Levothyroxine tablets.
