Can I Take Eltroxin While Breasfeeding
Yes: There is no data to indicate eltroxin (levothyroxine) has a negative effect on breastfeeding infants of mothers who take it. If a doctor has prescribed levothyroxine to you, this is not a reason to stop breastfeeding. Thyrpoid meds are definitely safe in pregnancy or lactation, as keeping your thyroid controlled helps to control your childs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Thyroid replacement: is designed and taken to return your abnormally low thyroid level to normal. It does not make you lose weight, but can restore your metabolic rate to normal.

To many pills: Both of your meds are the same thing. You only need one brand name T4 pill, but it has to be the correct dose to keep your lab normal. Once stabilized, which can take 6 weeks at a minimum (or longer), you will need to stay on it life long as it's a treatment, not a cure. ...Read more
Medicines: Safety from different meds is unclear and you MUST NOT change your meds without first seeing your doctor. Your hypothyroidism does not mean "Under active thyroid", it simply means that your thyroid glands may not be getting enough thyroid hormone. Please let me know what your doctor says! ...Read more

Not the forum. But N: This is not the forum by which physicians offer medical advice - for that you should use HealthTap Prime, which would allow a dialogue b/w you & a physician to discuss your medical condition & appropriate treatments. That being said, there is no evidence that ANY unregulated supplement (Lipo 6 burner included) does any good for weight loss. But it can be dangerous. So: a waste of $$ or worse. TTYD ...Read more

I am diagnosed with hypothyroid.At present I am on eltroxin 100 mg and calcium vitamins.Can i also take prenatal vitamins but I am not planning 2yrs.?
Yes: Yes you can. I think it is wise for everyone to take a multivitamin. Prenatal vitamins can be a great multiple for women of childbearing age even if they are not currently pregnant. There are many good ones. My favorite brands include rainbow light and new chapter. As you may know, it is best to take thyroid on an empty stomach and to not take calcium supplements until at least 2 hours later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
