Is it ok to take Levothyroxine and Topiramate & if so, how far apart?

Ok and one hour: It is okay to take both levothyroxine and topiramate if your doctor has prescribed them for you. Levothyroxine should always be taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It is best to wait at least one hour before taking other medications or food. ...Read more

I'm taking 100mgs of levothyroxine per day. My levels are normal now but I still can't lose weight. My doc won't give me t3 (liothyronine). Can I take kelp also?

I'm taking 100mgs of levothyroxine per day. My levels are normal now but I still can't lose weight. My doc won't give me t3 (liothyronine). Can I take kelp also?

No kelp: The most common cause of hypothyroidism in developed countries is hashimotos thyroiditis. Taking iodine, as in kelp, makes this worse. There is a small percentage of people with hypothyroidism that feel better on T3 (liothyronine) (due to decreased T4 to T3 (liothyronine) conversion in the brain, not elsewhere).

Iodine: Unless you have an iodine deficiency, iodine is not helpful in hypothyroidism. Iodine deficiency is very uncommon in the modern world because of supplementation. In the absence of iodine deficiency, iodine can suppress the iodination of thyroid hormone precursors and decrease T4 to T3 (liothyronine) conversion. In fact, an iodine drug called sski is used to treat over active thyroid. ...Read more

Probably nothing: No way to tell, but since the effects of T4 take many days to weeks of therapy to become effective, it's unlikely that three pills will have any significant adverse effect except to decrease stimulation of the child's own thyroid mechanism.
