Am I eligible for Levothroid patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Levothroid patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Levothroid enrollment application individually. The main factors considered are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Levothroid patient assistance program?

Applying for the Levothroid patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Levothroid, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Levothroid assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Levothroid patient assistance program, we will also request your Levothroid medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

NiceRx does not provide Levothroid coupons, discount cards or copay cards.

What is Levothroid?

Levothroid is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Abbott. Levothroid is used to treat hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid). It provides or replaces more thyroid hormone, normally produced by the thyroid gland. Levothroid is also used to treat other thyroid problems such as goiter (an enlarged thyroid gland) and thyroid cancer. Levothroid is not recommended for the treatment of obesity or for weight loss.

Typical symptoms of low thyroid hormone levels include tiredness, myalgia, constipation, weight gain, slow heartbeat, or feeling cold.

What doses of Levothroid are available?

Levothroid is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 25 mcg.

Take Levothroid orally once daily on an empty stomach, 30 minutes to 1 hour before breakfast with a full glass of water. Your dose will be based on your age, body weight, medical condition, test results, and your response to treatment.

Certain drugs such as cholestyramine, colestipol, antacids, sucralfate, simethicone, calcium supplements, orlistat, and sevelamer, may reduce the amount of thyroid hormone that is absorbed by your body. Separate these drugs from levothroid by taking them at least 4 hours apart.

Please read the full drug information and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
