Indirectly: If the original cause of underactive thyroid was a lack of iodine, then taking iodine will increase thyroid function and may probably make the synthroid (thyroxine) unneeded and make the thyroid function overactive.Otherwise there are no other interactions listed between synthroid (thyroxine) and iodine.
