Levothyroxine and multivitamins

Common Questions and Answers about Levothyroxine and multivitamins


Avatar m tn Could it be some chemical reaction from the Vit B complex or Magnesium and the levothyroxine? I have yet to take Vit D Test.
Dinosaur Also, it is recommended you separate taking iron-containing multivitamins and/or calcium supplements and levothyroxine by at least 4 hours. Thank you, Dr.
Avatar m tn What is the recommended time before and after when taking Armour (NDT) for both food and supplements like multivitamins etc? Both my wife and daughter are on Amour. And both want to take it all at once in the morning because it is a pain or they "forget" to take the afternoon dose because of when they eat or just forgetfulness.
4822967 tn?1367660296 I live in Oz too and the waiting list for my endocrinologist is around two months. You can also ask to be on the last minute cancellation list for a possible earlier appointment. There is a Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme to help with the cost of travel and accommodation if you need to travel to see an endocrinologist. I had acute kidney failure and have thyroid issues both hyper and hypo symptoms. I had severe itching and anaemia as two of my many symptoms of kidney failure.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am on levothyroxine tablets to lower my TSH. Is it ok to have vitamin tables for energy?
Avatar n tn 30 AM or 12 PM, an hour or more before my first meal of the day. (I am not a morning person.) So, from early January 2010 until around February 20, 2010, I took 125 mcg of levothyroxine per day. Also, during part of this time, I took Centrum at night. However, sometimes, I would get chest pains or some other kind of discomfort after taking the Centrum. So, I stopped taking the Centrum, probably in early February 2010.
Avatar n tn i was over the moon when they told me i was actually ill and didn't just have man flu.. my levothyroxine hasn't been with out teething prob's but it is generally massively helping. i have subsequently managed to drag my dad to the dr's (he hasn't seen a dr in years) low a behold = hypo... i strongly suspect my brother is, he totally fits the autoimmune hypo picture, he is going for bloods this week..... men you are not alone!!
Avatar n tn Tiredness, mood changes, diarrhea are few of the side effects of thyroxine sodium tablets. An overdose of levothyroxine can lead to bone loss and decrease in bone density. The joint pain can be due to this medication or some other cause. Few other causes of joint pains are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis etc.It is best to seek medical help and get evaluated. A complete examination will help. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn extreme lack of interest in living the life. I'm taking Eltroxine-100 since Nov'15 in the morning on fasting stomach. And multivitamins tablets & calcium tablets too after meal. Last test result done before 1.5 month are: T3 - 0.76 [0.7-2.0] T4 - 7.07 [4.0-12.5] TSH - 9.0 [0.5-5.5] I want to know whether these are the symptoms of depression? Are these psychological problems or what? As I'm not able to get joy from the things that I earlier used to get! Also, my mind has become dull.
1001981 tn?1293982081 I also take liquid flexicose MSN, glucosamine, and chondroitin every morning, and a packet of multivitamins, with COQ10 Vit E 400iu's, calcium 1200 mgs, Magnesium 400mgs, and 1200 Vit. D it has other mineral also. I am trying my best to get better. I am learning alot from the both of you,,,,,,,,,,,,,,keep me informed of your lab progress this is very interesting........
Avatar m tn I take the prenatal vitamins because I am planning on getting pregnant soon and I read that they can give you more energy that regular multivitamins. Could any of these be interacting with each other to cause these symptoms? What else could cause it? Please let me know if anyone has any ideas!!
1626306 tn?1302487106 Also on prescription strength reactin for allergies( food related), thyroid medication for Hashimoto's thyroiditis and I take multivitamins, because I have so many food sensitivities I can't eat very well, Omega 3,6,9, calcium and vitamin C. I'm not always religious about taking the vitamins-sometimes I forget and sometimes my stomach just isn't up to them. I've gone off the Lyrica and the Cipralex. I felt fine at first but now I feel like S--T.
Avatar f tn Anemia and deficiency of vitamins C, K, B12, or folic acid are the other common causes of easy bruisability.Try taking iron tablets and multivitamins for some days and see if the symptoms improve. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
219609 tn?1210351714 Taking LOTS of multivitamins seems to help this some. I also have very sore joints, muscle spasms, aches and pains nearly everywhere.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar f tn Drink plenty of fluids, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and take multivitamins. Get your thyroid function assessed. Since you are on thyroxine supplement a hyperthyroid like state may have been achieved by the body. Hope this helps. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
7729616 tn?1393799092 Antibiotic or other drug metabolism can also cause a feeling of heat in the body. Drink plenty of fluids, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and take multivitamins (as prescribed). Get your thyroid function assessed (T3, T4 and TSH should be done). Sjogren’s syndrome is another possibility. It can also be due to heart problems, especially if you feel suffocated at night. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar f tn We are reporting you and your drug site to the FDA, both local and national offices. You are pretending to be in the medical field and giving illegal medical advice just to make a buck by leading people to your online pharmacy site. You are not only a disgrace to the medical field, but to mankind itself for all the misleading and fraudulent information you give to unsuspecting people who are in need of real medical assistance.
Avatar m tn Hi there, In New Zealand here you can only get Levothyroxine and my doctor ran a free T4 test. and the range for Tsh is (0.4-4.0). My doctor keeps telling me that my Tsh should be closer to 1.0 for thyroid suppression.
Avatar f tn You are very rude. People and kindness are far more important than a few words. Words or not we got what they meant and that is what is important.
Avatar f tn It looks like the only things you wouldn't be getting at least 100% of with the effervescent tablet (and some more than 1000% of) is the iron and copper and the others don't even mention those anyway. In that case, 3 multi's just seem like a bit of overkill, not to mention unnecessary expense. Some of us need extra calcium to prevent osteoporosis, some don't. I happen to be one that does.
Avatar f tn Today I felt much better,bought multivitamins and St. John's Worth caps,feeling much better,crappy and low on energy but much better and don't want to feel the wd symptoms ever again.Thank you all for your support.
Avatar m tn Hypothyroidism is safely and effectively treated with the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine. Generally, there's no hypothyroidism diet. Although claims about hypothyroidism diets abound, there's no evidence that eating or avoiding certain foods will improve thyroid function. If you have hypothyroidism, take thyroid hormone replacement as directed by your doctor — generally on an empty stomach.
Avatar f tn For meds I'm on Metoporolol started ~ 10 mo. ago, and Levothyroxine since last April. Nothing is the same besides that from week to week I eat a wide variety of foods, different from the kids- they are picky.
Avatar f tn It is still unstable after 13 years of treatment. If you take calcium/magnesium and/or multivitamins make sure it is 4 hours before or after you take your thyroid medicine. Also do not drink caffeine with your thyroid medicine. I wonder why your GP didn't go to 137 mcg instead of jumping to 150 mcg.
Avatar f tn He said I can go as long as I can go just as long as I continue to take my multivitamins. I'm only doing it for 2 weeks to jump start my health and start fresh on the paleo diet again after falling into some bad eating habits. I'm starting my second week on the juice diet, it's very evident what I can and cannot handle when I try to introduce simple carbs or dairy. I have had a whole lot more energy than before though which is awesome.
4378213 tn?1353691440 Thyroid question part 2 by GeminiX /4 hours After blood work, i found out my THYROID hasnt been working for yrs and i was put on 100mg of LEVOTHYROXINE daily. After a few months i figured i would stop taking the HTCZ med since the other LEV med was supposed to level my system out back to norm levels. Well 2 days after not being on the HTCZ my feet were swollen again. So i started taking them again and swelling went away. During my 4 different office visits and blood work drawn every month.
Avatar n tn Currently I worked better without Brain fog. Fatigue and some neuropathy (Tingling and numbness in hands and feet) still bothers me. Especially last week I ran out of energy after moderate exercise and just walking around makes my feet numb. I also felt my shoulders and back of my neck are always stiff and easily get tired. My GP told me that I'm stressed out if my shoulders and neck get stiff and she asked me to massage the area and try some relaxation.
Avatar f tn So, I know the option for euthyroid patients with antibodies is to treat with levothyroxine and suppress the autoimmune process. I mentioned this to my doc who essentially said there was no way she could give me thyroid replacement because she's afraid she would send me into thyrotoxicosis crisis. I get it. I would actually be hesitant to try it anyway. Ever heard of going the other direction and trying methimazole or PTU?
Avatar f tn Last month I went into the doc on 9/25/14 to surrender my struggle of chronic fatigue, sensitivity to pain, tension migraines, cold feet, puffy/stiff hands and chronic fatigue and wild food and late night sweet cravings. I was wondering if I had diabetes with the cold feet and cravings, RA with my stiff puffy hands and extreme water retention in my hands and face, or if I was fighting an infection somewhere in my body because I have been bone dead tired.
