Does taking karatom effect Coumadin (warfarin) level?

Does taking karatom effect Coumadin (warfarin) level?

Kratom?: There is no listing for karatom. I assume you mean kratom? The answer is: no one knows. It's never been systematically studied. I read about this herb: http://www.Erowid.Org/plants/kratom/kratom_effects.Shtml - like so many herbs, it claims highly variable and opposite effects. My personal feeling is that it is foolish to use such drugs - you have no idea what you're actually getting. ...Read more

Does taking cabergoline for elevated prolactin improve thyroidproduction?How long would it take to notice improvemtents?

Does taking cabergoline for elevated prolactin improve thyroidproduction?How long would it take to notice improvemtents?

Maybe: Usually, if someone has ^ prolactin and an underactive thyroid, it's because the low thyroid levels increase a brain hormone, trh, that acts on the pituitary to raise TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and prolactin. Almost always, treatment w/ thyroid hormone will correct both problems. Very rarely, someone could have a large pituitary tumor making prolactin & suppressing TSH Cabergoline can help. ...Read more

How long does l-thyroxin (one 0.75 microgram pill per day) need to lower TSH level? My cd3 bloodwork result for TSH is 6.17 (norm: 0.3-3.5)

How long does l-thyroxin (one 0.75 microgram pill per day) need to lower TSH level? My cd3 bloodwork result for TSH is 6.17 (norm: 0.3-3.5)

Mildly low: Your TSH is only mildly elevated. Your thyroid level (free t4) is likely to still be in the normal range. If you recently gave birth, this could be a temporary problem (post partum thyroiditis), and may not require treatment. Taking 0.75 mg of thyroxine should correct the level within a few weeks (though you may not feel any different). ...Read more

What might explain steady drop in TSH levels when someone is consistently taking 75mcg of synthroid (thyroxine)?

How you take it: The absorption of thyroid hormone is strongly affected by when you take it with respect to the food you eat. If the time varies the absorption varies significantly. Since the TSH varies with a significant inverse correlation with the amount of thyroid hormone in your blood, you had better think about absorption issues. Also, if you are switching back and forth between generic and brand that may be ...Read more

Major depression, mind fog, exhausted achs...Thyroid levels slightly elevated...Been on lower dosage of Synthroid (thyroxine) for 4 day. How long before it help?

Major depression, mind fog, exhausted  achs...Thyroid levels slightly elevated...Been on lower dosage of Synthroid (thyroxine) for 4 day. How long before it help?

Difficult to say: If you're depression is indeed being caused by april thyroidism then you could take a month or more for your thyroid build up to a level where the depression would go into remission. However, i also see that you're not on an antidepressant and that might be a wise thing to start on in the interim. There is no guaranteed that correcting your thyroid will alleviate your depression. And depression may simply be another disease that happened to occur while you were hypothyroid. It's difficult in these situations to imply causeand effect. Please discuss this with your doctor. Best wishes and good luck for a happy holiday season. ...Read more
