Effect of methadone on TSH and thyroid hormone secretion.

Abstract

The hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid function was studied in 15 male patients on chronic methadone treatment (40 mg/day). No significant variations of TSH, T4, T3 and rT3 levels were documented, either in basal conditions or after TRH stimulation; however a reduced TSH pituitary response was recorded in some patients (6 out of 15).
