What are the side affects of zoloaf? Is it normal for a dr to put you on zoloaf if you have thyroid probelms (low) and low B12 (221)?

It's ok: There's no hazard in taking zoloft (sertraline) if a person also has low thyroid and low vitamin b12, although the zoloft won't correct either of these problems. Zoloft helps depression, anxiety, and some other nervous conditions. Common side effects: dry mouth, upset stomach, restless legs, & decreased libido. However, most users tolerate it well. ...Read more

Hi. What can you do for low b12?And does low thyroid have anything to do with that?Thanks

B12: 1) taking B12 is the best treatment for low b12. However, pills may not work for some people who can't absorb it. In this case, you may need to take it by nasal spray, under the tongue, or by injection. 2) both hypothyroidism & inability to absorb B12 can be caused by auto-immunity, which means that a person's own immune system is attacking their own proteins and tissues. ...Read more

Is friend a doc?: If you keep getting regular injections of B12, you will not have any disease due to deficiency of B12 per se. The underlying cause of B12 deficiency is more important in determining what other issues may arise. Since you are seeing a doctor for B12 injections you should discuss your concerns with her/him.

I am B12 def & have hypothyroidism. Been having extreme neuro symtoms for 6 mos that dr says aren't neuro. Could B12 & thyroid cause symptoms?

Yes: This is hard to answer definitively without knowing more details of your symptoms, but B12 deficiency can cause a wide range of neurological symptoms & hypothyroidism can cause some. See http://chriskresser.Com/b12-deficiency-a-silent-epidemic-with-serious-consequences and the book could it be b12?

Can vitamine B12 deficienty cause an overactive thyroid?

Can vitamine B12 deficienty cause an overactive thyroid?

Not Exactly: The most common cause of both an overactive thyroid and B12 deficiency is autoimmunity, in which the immune system mistakenly attacks one's own tissues and proteins. Having 1 auto-immune condition makes it more likely for a person to develop a 2nd autoimmune condition, but it wouldn't be true to say that one condition caused the other. The underlying autoimmunity caused both. ...Read more
