Our expert says:
The active ingredient of eltroxin is the same as the hormone thyroxine, which is produced naturally by the thyroid gland. These hormones are responsible for maintaining a normal rate of metabolism in the body.
Eltroxin tablets are given to replace the thyroxine that would normally be produced naturally by the thyroid gland, and should not affect your BP adversely. In fact, some studies have shown that you BP may in fact be lowered when your thyroxine levels are normalised.
