For many people with an underactive thyroid (Hypothyroidism) taking thyroxine medication is a simple process of taking a standard and stable dose of pills every day for life. Providing you are well and stable we may be able to monitor your health without you visiting the practice.
If this applies to you (and you are not on any other tablets requiring monitoring), then before your medication runs out please complete this assessment and we will review whether we can repeat your medication for another 9-12 months.
