This medicine acts as an alternative to natural thyroxine hormone (T4) secreted by the thyroid gland. It gets converted into an active metabolite (T3) in the kidney and liver. The thyroid hormones combine with thyroxine-binding globulin and thyroxine-binding prealbumin to escalate solubility. It, then, combines with thyroid hormone receptors in the nucleus and cytoplasm.
