Our expert says:
Eltroxin is a replacement therapy - it is thyroid hormone for people that don't make enough thyroid hormone on their own (like insulin for diabetics) if she has a low thyroid hormone level, she can't function normally without it. Too much eltroxin would cause palpitations, and too little would cause weight gain, dry skin and hair, tiredness.
