What is the dose of thyroxin in case of hypothyroidism


Depends on the weight of the patient and level of S. TSH

If overt hypothyroidism, usually initiate the thyroxine dose With 1.6 mcg per kg per day. Repeat TFT every 8 to 12 weeks initially, and titrate the dose accordingly. Also consider AMA in view of autoimmune variation.
