OK short term but...: Proton pump inhibitors reduce B12 absorption. I feel they are unsafe for anyone to use for more than a few months. For alternatives that can cure acidity see http://tinyurl.com/3pc8h8u Most with hypothyroidism benefit from T3 (liothyronine). See http://tinyurl.com/3anzhhg and http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/t4-only-meds-dont-work/ A holistic/integrative MD can help with these issues.
