Protonix and synthroid

Common Questions and Answers about Protonix and synthroid

protonix

I started taking 25 mgs. of synthroid on Sept. 4th, and right away I've had relieve from a lot of my symptoms, including indigestion & heartburn. Probably is the placebo effect. Either way I'm still symptom free except for the heartburn, that's actually worse than before taking synthroid. I am having it all day. Therefore, I'm not sure if the synthroid is the cause or if it may be caused from me drinking my morning coffee without taking the protonix. Due to having to wait 4 hrs.
But the protonix caused the stomach pains, bloating and back pain. I didn't even think about it being the protonix until about the 4th day and it struck me that was the only change in meds. I stopped taking it yesterday and already 80% better. Today just a tad of nausea but much more bearable than the week before. I also take synthroid (hypothyroidism), estradiol (hot flashes) & benecar for high blood pressure. I'm 56 years old and never has a medication made me hurt like that.
There is no med that cannot be taken with synthroid. The protonix and estrogen and anti-depressants could be taken with synthroid but I prefer to wait at least 30-60 minutes. These meds effect thyroid levels in ways other than directly decreasing absorption. Monitor levels every 3 months with all these med changes.
Any suggestions on when it's best to get TSH, FT4/FT retested after starting synthroid? Would 5 wks. post be sufficient enough time for a more accurate result in how the hormone replacement is working? Also, should I take my synthroid the morning of retesting? I've heard it's better to retest later in the day. My only problem is I've to fast, due to my Dr. also retesting Lipid Panel & A1C. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
When I found out I was pg they took me off all my meds except insulin, synthroid, and oc the prenatal vitamin. I can no longer take my heart meds for high blood pressure and irregular hb; topomax for migraines; metaphormin; and a few others. Which I quit taking some of my meds before pregnancy because I did a lifestyle change in which it helped enough that I could quit taking the extra meds. As far as C-section...
I am 46, have Barrett's without dysplasia and I am on Protonix. I also have hypothyroidism and on meds for that. My doctor says I should lose some weight which I have been trying to do. Does anyone have these same diseases and have they manageged to lose weight....and if so... please, tell me what changes have you made to your diet to do so? I have drastically cut down on eating and still no results.
Q. Will the natural metabolic process of dissolving fat with the Lipodissolve treatment adversely affect my autoimmune system? I had a consultation to have this nonsurgical procedure for fat reduction by microinjections of PPD, done on my abs and chin. The doctor who directs the clinic is a MD, FACS. I understand the two naturally occuring chemicals, phospatidylcholine (soy product/lethicin) and deoxycholate (bile acid) shrink & dissolve fat cells as a detergent.
i learned how to better maintain my overall health when i took myself off of all the other pain meds, anxiety meds and antidepressants i was on. i also have to take synthroid and cytomel for underactive thyroid as well as protonix for gerd and atacand hct for high blood pressure. i also have been recently diagnosed with asthma (now on singulair, allegra, flonase, and sometimes use albuterol inhaler) that i wonder if it is due to the opiate use. any thoughts on that?
At that time, also had EGD of esophagus and disagnosed with corrosive espohagitis. Put me on Protonix. Fixed the GERD immediately. I felt good for about 6 months. Move forward to June 2011. Lightheadedness, short cough, feeling of euphoria sometimes, shaky, scared. Have my blood work done regularly and my TSH is always in the specified range of .40 - 4.5, always. Never is the same but somewhere in that range. It can be 1.55 one time and the next it is 3.67.
on 5,000 liquid Vit D a day Gastritis 2012: on Protonix 40mg a day Endometriosis stage 3 or 4 2012: on Lo LoEstrin FE (newly added) I feel like the Hashi's is under control for now but honestly I feel like a walking time bomb. Is there anything I can do to stop this autoimmune cycle or at least calm it down? Each of my specialist Dr's looks at only that specific problem, not the big picture so I am worried that my autoimmune battle is just beginning.
The auras are gone and now I get what starts out like the feeling of fingers being run up the back of my head only to feel as if its going through my brain and spreading and then I get what feels like someone taking their fist and pushing on either side of my right and left eye and pushing them together and the I lose total focus of my eyes.(all this happens at the same time) these things only show up once or twice a week.
Did your periods slow down after starting the iron? Went to the ob/gyn and they didn't find anything wrong. Also switched recently from taking synthroid for past 9 years, because I always still had symptoms even with good lab work, to thyrolar which is t3/t4. I have to say I definitely feel more awake.
I take the synthyroid (complete thyroidectomy Dec 2008) and coumadin (DVT) at the same time and then 1 1/2 hrs later, I take topamax (migraine) and protonix (GERD). Is this enough time between each?
I began last year with TSH of nearly 57 and antibodies of 8800. Have posted before and hope your input can be of further assistance. Am currently recently ( 3 weeks ago) placed on .125 mcg synthroid. This was increase from .112. TSH had gone up from 1.87 to 2.8 last blood work. Currently noticing more anxiety, especially in am.
I take toporol, topamax with lexapro for the migraines, duragesic patches, synthroid and protonix for acid reflux. NYU has a program for patients with Arthrogryposis, including neurology, I am wondering if I should go to New York if this could be part of it.
I am now having difficulty with focusing my eyes, joint swelling and a vibration in my chest. I am taking Synthroid, Nadolol, Protonix and Triamterene. I am not convinced that these symptoms are all from the Hypothyroid and wanted your opinion please. Could all of this including the Hypothyroidism be caused by something else??? Thank you for your time.
I was given zofran, carafate, protonix, synthroid, estradial, and she didn't say anything about having to come in and personally give me those medications. It was only when she had to give me the shot of morphine that she got upset. That defniitely shows they are judging people. I can't understand because I was on the woman's ward where they deliver babies, etc...
I am on synthroid - i have noticed swelling in my legs and muscle pain. I did look up the drug and it says it causes anxiety for the side effects. I would check with my regular doctor if I were you.
is eaten very day hereafter. You might take synthroid and Simethicone (Gas-X) or Protonix, opposite ends of the day/night , such as, take synthroid in the AM and take the other at PM or bedtime, or, at least 4 hours apart from each other. Weight is just about everyone's issue. Mine has finally stabilized after 10 years and that is with still watching what I eat. Exercise has never helped me lose weight.
Digestion is a metabolic process, so it would slow down as well, creating heartburn/discomfort. I would definitely discuss with doctor and find out if you are hypo at this point, and perhaps he/she will prescribe prilosec or something else to protect your esophogus (sp?) and provide relief. Good luck!
I am sensitive to meds...any meds...and had problems with feeling drugged and sedated on Levoxyl, tried SYnthroid (same dose) for a month and felt more energy but my existing muscle problems were worse. Tried Armour f(15 gr) for 1 week and could not take the T#...made me hyper. Because of my sensitivity to drugs, I read on forums to try taking meds under the tongue...which I itred and it seems to be better. Fewer bad effects on my muscles and less GERD, sleepiness, etc. My question is....
singulair, xyzal, omnaris (chemical sensitivities and regular allergies) synthroid topamax (migraines) wellbutrin After being seriously overmedicated for 4 years before my dx....I'm also very careful about what meds I take and how they interact. I didn't have any luck with flexeril, amitriptyline or cymbalta. I took vioxx for years and felt great on it....

I remeber taking the synthroid around 5 a.m., and took the antacid around 8 a.m. and didn't have any problems. Hope that helps you out!

Thank you for the feedback. I'm aware that the need to increase my med's as my thyroid function decreases will eventually happen. Actually, I do feel well at this time. Therefore, was afraid to increase my synthroid at all. I am gonna skip my dose of protonix in the am & see if my indigestion is gone. If so, then that will take care of all my hypo symptoms. Also, per a couple of other members suggestions. I'm gonna just increase another 12.5 mgs. to my 25 mgs. daily and see how I do on that.
