CYNOMEL® is indicated in the treatment of hypothyroidism when there is a decrease or absence of thyroid function, caused by antithyroid agents, radiotherapy, primary atrophy, partial or total removal of the gland or due to functional alterations thereof. CYNOMEL® is effective in the treatment of hypothyroidism of any etiology. The use of CYNOMEL® as a substitute therapy in simple goiter (non-toxic) results in a rapid reduction in the size of the thyroid gland.
CYNOMEL® has proven useful in some patients who do not respond to other thyroid preparations, probably because it has an efficient absorption. It can be used in patients allergic to dried thyroid or other porcine or bovine thyroid extracts.
CYNOMEL® can be used in the T3 suppression test to differentiate between hyperthyroidism and euthyroidism.
