Propranolol and hypothyroidism

Common Questions and Answers about Propranolol and hypothyroidism


Avatar n tn she recently had a TIA/stroke and was rushed to the ER. Her Neurologist prescriped 10mg of Propranolol twcie a day - he stated it is related to her migraines. She takes her meds. separate from each other to prevent interaction. I know that Propranolol is used to treat hypEerthyroidism as well as her migraines. Will the Propranolol raise TSH??????????? I can't tell if it is used to treat some of the SYMPTOMS of hypErthyroidism such as high blood pressure or if this drug actually raises the TSH.
Avatar f tn I have Graves disease and was put on Methimzole and Propranolol. The combination relieved my hyper symptoms and I was losing weight while on those meds. Eventually it tapered off. I have read thatbwhen you are Hyper you eat much more, I didn't find that to be true, I was so hyper, I could barely eat. I loss over 15 lbs. Once me levels lowered, they did keep me on the dosage ( it was 10 mg per day).
Avatar f tn So, please post your most recent thyroid labs and include reference ranges (they vary lab to lab and have to come from your own lab report). Are weight gain and tremors your only symptoms?
1297586 tn?1274109547 This lasted until I got my thyroid checked. Turns out I had hypothyroidism and after a week of meds, my hearing was back to normal. I was recently put on propranolol for migraine associated vertigo and the problem with sudden hearing loss has returned. I have an appointment to ave my thyroid rechecked his week and I strongly believe the blood tests checking my thyroid will come back low and my daily dosage will need to be raised.
291885 tn?1404896807 I have been having weird symptoms of being both hypo and hyper for the last year and went to a cardiologist who gave me some samples of beta blockers. I am hypothyroid but have had some heart palpitations and breathing problems so the cardiologist said the beta blockers should help.
Avatar m tn I take levothyroxin manufacted by Milan. My TSH result is 7.12 and my T4 is 0.7. I am increasingly anxious and sweat excessively and feel a racing pulse. Could there be any connection with my thyroid? I've always had anxiety but this feels unusual. Thanks for any input.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Hi, I'm newly diagnosed with Hashimoto's/Hypothyroidism and I have noticed that each medicine dosage change/increase hits me like a ton of bricks for a few days and then things seem to level off. This is true even for increases. I was first diagnosed by a regular MD and prescribed Levothyroxine, which made me feel absolutely horrible. I didn't feel symptoms of hypothyroidism until I started taking that medication specifically.
Avatar m tn also taking propranolol and now crazy about that either. Can anyone explain my levels to me. I'm so dumb when it comes to understanding it. Tsh - .005 T4-24 T3-10.3... I would appreciate any input on what it means.
Avatar m tn panic attacks, high blood pressure and heart rate, hypothyroidism. I take Zoloft, Xanax, Propranolol, Levothyroxine, and am on Methadone treatment for opiate dependence. Sorry if I left something out, I had to delete my entire post and start over with just footnotes due to 2000 character limit. If it seems jumbled, thats why. Any help would be appreciated, I have blood work I am waiting for the results on and I just want the truth. What could I possibly be looking at? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn It goes over 115 -120 sometimes. So the Propranolol helps so much. And I am taking PTU. Which is the anti thyroid. So far it is working and calms me down and I don't go crazy with anxiety and random nervousness. I suggest you give these anti thyroid drugs a try before you do RAI. You can always lower your dosage. It won't hurt to try. Only hurts when you don't. Since hyperthyroidism feels like you're going insane and sweating everywhere lol.
Avatar n tn I have been told on here that it's the TSH and those numbers that diagnoses hypothyroidism. See, I think I started with Hashimoto's and was never diagnosed, Every time I became pregnant, I had huge flares, I have very severe hypo symptoms, I think I'm already there. doctors here really don't have a clue. I see a specialist in another town at the end of August.
Avatar f tn Thetam01~ Levothyroxine, and Synthroid are both for HypOthyroidism. my son is on Levoxyl (same med... diff name).... :) but nana~ I agree... they should've given you a THYROID med. If they get your thyroid under control you can get pregnant. you should be able to healthily.
Avatar n tn I had chest x rays,blood, urine and stool tests and everything came back fine. I was given propranolol for my chest pain and heart racings, I was given lasix to get rid of my severe water retention, cause I forgot to add, that I gained like 30 pounds in a matter of days. They put me on an anti-depressant, for my anxiety and sent me home, I was back the next day, because I was alittle better, but was getting new symptoms now, fatigue, muscle and joint aches etc.
Avatar n tn I am 58 years old. I also have low slightly low WBC (3.4 (normal 4.8-10.8) and Mcv and Mch and MPV all just slightly over high of normal. Any insights? I struggle to keep my weight normal. I do have normal weight, but don't eat much to maintain. I have many food allergies, so dodge alot of foods. My recent moods have been low. I so appreciate help. MD's don't seem to think much about all this.
Avatar m tn Today I went to see a neurologist today, and hopefully try to get him to get an MRI of my pituitary gland and thyroid, but he only prescribed some Imitrex (100mg), Propranolol (20mg), tramadol (50mg), and ibuprofen (800mg) for migraine headaches, I get them on and off, sometimes they are pretty bad but anyway that was all, and he didn’t see any other reason to have an MRI done.
Avatar f tn 's - it could be very important to know It would be obvious that if you are on antithyroid medication and beta blockers you do have issues. Common symptoms (and CAN be with opposite hypothyroidism) is heart palps, anxiety, shaking, sensitive to heat or cold, mood swings, irrational thinking or false solution decisions, anger, nausea, and weight changes. How many and what do you have right now?
Avatar f tn Also Since august 2012 i have taking half of clonazapam .5mg and 20mg propranolol. is this the beginning of dyskenisia or akathesia. i am 55 years, overweight with hypothyroidism. is there any cure?
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar f tn 61-1.12 TSH 0.07 0.34-5.60 I was given propranolol and and numerous thyroid tests. Suspicious nodules were found and a TT was recommended. The surgery was fine and the nodules were benign The surgeon put me on .125mcg of levothyroxine but I felt like this was way too much because of the hyperthyroid symptoms and I weigh 100 lbs. I'd also read where you should start at a small dose and work up. Anyway, I cut it in half (I know that's bad) but I was desperate.

Avatar n tn I asked about my thyroid and he looked at my bloodwork and said it is coming down. My resting heart rate was 137 and i had tremors. He said that it is tx induced acute thyroiditis and it did not need thyroid meds, it is already working itself out. He precribed me Propranolol for my heart rate and i feel like a new woman. I have been cleaning my house soending time with the kids and hubby. Every one is so happy to see me up and around.
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar f tn I also take Propranolol, a beta blocker to prevent migraines, control pvcs and I found that it's even helped to control my anxiety to an extent. It's a good drug for me, but if it does not work as a preventative medication my headache specialist plans to put me on Topamax. I too am afraid of the side effects, but I have children and I think it is unfair to allow myself to continue with disabling headaches and have them affected as well.
Avatar n tn This phenomenon is seen in rheumatic diseases like scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, hypothyroidism, drugs like propranolol and estrogens. Consult a rheumatologist immediately for your clinical evaluation. Take care.
Avatar f tn I forget to mention that I have been on Levothyroxine for about 2 years also, for hypothyroidism. I am on 10 mg Hydrocortisone and 120 mg propranolol daily.
897578 tn?1241724871 Here is me I wish I knew how this guy ended up.
534785 tn?1329595808 In any event, my headaches are back with a vengeance because I stopped Propranolol and started on Metoprolol. Thank you both for your input and help. I really appreciate it since most of my doctors aren't that interested in my case and my family and friends don't understand what I'm going through...they're even getting sick of me being sick for so long!
Avatar f tn I went back to 50 mcg, but my Hypothyroidism is worse than ever. My Cardiologist gave me 60mg of Propranolol LA in ADDITION to the 30mg Nifedipine XL I'm already taking to see if this will stop my angina every time I attempt to up my dose of Synthroid. I asked him if this was ok to take them both and he said it should be ok. I'm concerned though because I have read it can cause severe Hyptotension and could cause other heart problems.
Avatar n tn I do have hypothyroidism and bad seasonal allergies but nothing serious. I would love to hear how things have progressed with you.
