It reads on the bottle: Sintrocid (Levotiroxina Sodica). The reason I'm asking is because they were marketing it as "Synthroid". It is WAY LESS expensive than what he pays for his Synthroid in USA so wondered it is the same thing. His doctor told him no generics so I'm trying to find out just what this Sintrocid is.
Also be sure to ask your pharmacy what the cash price is versus an insurance co-pay for Synthroid. You can print coupons from Synthroid's website that you can use when you pay the cash price. Some of the doses I've been on have been a lot cheaper that way, which really helps!
