Not typically: Different mechanism as to how pancreatitis and thyroid diesase occurs. Some drugs can indeed affect thyroid function, e.g. Some cardiac meds, interferon. Arguably, some idiosyncratic reaction (unexpected, unpredictable, and for no known reason) to any med could conceivably stimulate the immune system to cause hyperthyroidism-would be pretty rare. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
