Hi, I believe most of you here are in the UK so you may not know this brand (I'm in Belgium and I've had to order it from France), but I am about to switch from the Belgian brand L-Thyroxine to Thyrofix and I wondered whether anyone had any experience of the latter or a brand with the same or similar ingredients? I'm switching because it contains no lactose and I'm lactose intolerant. The ingredients in Thyrofix other than levothyroxine sodium are:
- Powdered cellulose
- Croscarmellose sodium
- Colloidal anhydrous silica
- Microcristalline cellulose
- Magnesium stearate
For comparison, the extra ingredients in the Belgian brand are lactose, talc, maize starch and magnesium stearate, plus different colorants for the different dosages (I had to combine three!).
Just wondering if I'm likely to notice any effects other than the benefit of not taking in lactose every day. When the formula of the Belgian brand was changed a few years ago, I needed to decrease my daily dose.
Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.
