T4 medications are the most commonly prescribed thyroid hormone replacement drugs and the most prescribed drug in the US.
T3 delivers oxygen and energy to cells, tissues, & glands throughout the body. This combination can help patients who have trouble converting T4 into T3

Your Paloma doctor will determine a dosage that's appropriate for your age, weight, current thyroid production, other medical conditions and other factors.
Your provider will retest your TSH levels about 6 to 10 weeks later and adjust the dosage as necessary.
Once the best dosage is determined, you will continue to take the medication once a day. You'll need follow-up tests at least once a year to monitor TSH levels or any time after your provider changes your dosage.
