Is Alvidar available in SA?
Hi Doc

My sister immigrated to Usa earlier this year and her dr prescribed Alvidar for underactive thyroid, I have the same problem and was wondering if it is available in SA?

Dear Hendrea
You must first let your doctor check your thyroid by doing thyroid hormone blood tests. It is not in my medical book of registered medications. We normally use Eltroxin.
