The Importance of Blister Packs in Managing Hypothyroidism
January 25, 2021
Blisters over Bottles
Hypothyroidism — or an underactive thyroid gland — is most prevalent in older women. Having a stable thyroid is critical to help keep the body running normally. And the medicine used to treat this condition also needs to be stable.
The standard treatment for managing hypothyroidism consists of thyroid hormone replacement called levothyroxine, an oral medication taken daily to help restore the thyroid hormone to adequate levels, thereby treating the signs and symptoms. It’s measured in micrograms (mcg), as opposed to milligrams, so it is a very small amount of active ingredient. Maintaining the drug’s potency and stability is paramount.
Traditional pill bottles do not offer the protection that individually packed tablets provide. Using blister packaging, which is individually sealed with aluminum on both sides, assures patients that the strength of the last tablet consumed will be the same as the first. EUTHYROX® only come in blister packs and are just as affordable as their generic counterparts.
