Answer

Thyroid hormones

These agents are used in hypothyroidism.

Levothyroxine (Synthroid, Levoxyl, Levothroid, Tirosint, Unithroid)

In active form, levothyroxine influences the growth and maturation of tissues. It is involved in normal growth, metabolism, and development. Endocrinologists can monitor and adjust the doses to optimal effect. A serum free thyroxine value in the upper third of normal range is the goal.
