What Is Thyroid USP Used For?

Is Thyroid USP Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend thyroid USP for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. Sometimes, it is used in an off-label fashion in conjunction with antidepressants to treat depression, particularly depression that has been resistant to other treatments.
It is important to note that thyroid USP should not be used as a weight loss medication in people without thyroid problems. Weight loss is usually only seen at doses that are high enough to cause serious side effects of thyroid USP. Also, the drug should not be used to treat infertility, unless it is related to a thyroid problem.
