Yes: Hi. Yes, certainly. Just be aware that Premarin (conjugated estrogens) will increase levels of thyroxine binding globulin (TBG), which binds T4 (l-thyroxine) and T3 (Cytomel). I don't know your clinical circumstances, but just be aware that increased TBG may make less of the Cytomel dose available to your body. Also, be aware of the risks vs. benefits of postmenopausal estrogen replacement. Good luck!
