#livingwithdisease

It is that time of year when we all start taking trips to sunny beaches, getaways to blue skies and Christmas holidays for laughter and fun! So one question I always get from newly pledged thyroid natives is what to do with your thyroid medication on long hauled trips. ⁠
⁠
⁠
For those of us with a Hypothyroid or Hashimottos disease we’re most probably on a type of Thyroxine / Levothyroxine  medication. This medication needs to be kept refrigerated. But alas did you know that your medication can actually be out of the fridge for up to 7 days so long as the temperature does not reach above 25 degrees Celsius / 77 degrees Fahrenheit. ⁠
⁠
Just remember to check with the manufacture of your Thyroxine. Do this by either sending them an email or checking their website. ⁠
⁠
⁠
Here is a list of Thyroxine / Levothyroxine manufacturers:⁠
I’ll tag the ones that have Instagram accounts⁠
⁠
Lannett Company : customerservice@lannett.com⁠
Mylan Pharmaceuticals⁠
Attix Pharmaceuticals : attix@attixpharmaceuticals.com⁠
King Legacy⁠
Pfizer: @pfizerinc⁠
Alara Pharmaceutical Company⁠
Virbac⁠
Lloyd Inc. of Iowa⁠
Franck’s Lab⁠
Abbott Laboratories: @abbottglobal⁠
⁠
Either way you can purchase some thyroid travel medication coolers from Amazon as well as from your local thyroid organisation. ⁠
