Abstract

T(4) tablets and liquid T(4) solution have been proven to be therapeutically equivalent; the use of liquid T(4) solutions will have advantages in the treatment of hypothyroid infants or elderly patients with disturbed swallowing, patients who need a differentiated titration of the T(4) dose, as well as patients with an allergy against inactive ingredients of L-thyroxine tablets.
