A 28-year-old member asked:

Is it safe to take Synthroid (thyroxine) while pregnant?

Dr. David Fein
Specializes in Preventive Medicine
Yes: Not only is it safe, but if you were taking Synthroid (thyroxine) before your pregnancy, it is crucial to continue your Synthroid (thyroxine) during your pregnancy. Hypothyroidism (low thyroid disease) during pregnancy is a common medical condition. Your ob/gyn will check your thyroid hormone level throughout your pregnancy to maintain an adequate level.

Possibly: A dose higher than one needs may cause an elevation of the heart rate or blood pressure that causes the metabolic demand for oxygen by the heart to exceed the ability of the coronary arteries to supply the oxygen, leading to chest discomfort. Thyroid function tests, especially the TSH level, & evaluation by your doctor is prudent, especially if some underlying condition exists, unmasked by the rx.
