Anti-thyroxine refers to substances or medications that work to inhibit or block the effects of thyroxine, a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. Thyroxine plays a crucial role in controlling the body’s metabolism, growth, and development. However, in certain conditions, such as hyperthyroidism, where the thyroid gland produces an excess amount of thyroxine, anti-thyroxine medications are used to counteract its effects. By blocking the action of thyroxine, these medications help to normalize thyroid hormone levels and alleviate symptoms associated with hyperthyroidism, such as rapid heartbeat, weight loss, and nervousness.

Some examples of anti-thyroxine drugs include propylthiouracil (PTU), methimazole and perchlorate.
