Eltroxin: a new brand of thyroxine replacement therapy is now available in Australia

Aspen, the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the only brands of thyroxine (Oroxine and Eutroxsig) that have been available in Australia has now introduced a third brand of thyroxine for therapeutic use. The new product with the brand name of Eltroxin is being imported and is widely used overseas, particularly in Europe. It has now been approved for use in Australia by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Aspen claims that it is a new formulation and the big difference between Eltroxin and current brands is that Eltroxin does not need to be refrigerated, making it more convenient particularly for patients who may be travelling and needing to refrigerate their Oroxine or Eutroxsig medication.

Snacks were virtually impossible to find and cakes and biscuits that were available were packed full of fats and calories. Fast forward till today and we now have an entire section of major supermarkets dedicated to gluten free foods; gluten free bread options are produced by the major bread makers and it is not uncommon to see gluten free menu options at popular restaurants. Food times are a changing.
