Abstract

Drug-induced thyroid disorders are common in clinical practice. It is important to recognize the various drugs contributing to thyroid dysfunction for a timely intervention to help achieve a euthyroid state. The pathways of thyroid hormone synthesis, secretion, transport, metabolism, and absorption offer numerous targets for medication interactions. This article discusses some of the medications that may influence thyroid function tests.
