Introduction The synthetic form of thyroid hormone-tetraiodothyronine is quite useful for the treatment of non-drug induced hypothyroidism including radioiodine-131 therapy induced hypothyroidism. Attention to certain aspects is required while the therapy is instituted with this drug. Objective(s) To highlight the precautions which ensure good therapeutic outcome when levothyroxine is being taken as thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Methods Case study method was conducted. In a case of hypothyroidism, the patient had purchased levothyroxine preparation without its container and did not store it properly. There was failure of therapy. Repurchase of same drug in its container and its proper storage helped to achieve optimal therapeutic outcome. Conclusion Synthetic levothyroxine which is used as thyroid hormone replacement therapy is very unstable if exposed to light and humidity. Further, only very minute amount (in micrograms) being required, any loss of potency can result in failure of therapy. Therefore, it is essential that the drug should be stored in a dark colored container with a tight lid away from sunlight and moisture.
