Can take Robitussin (guaifenesin) peak cold before I take my thryoid medication?

Depends: You don't say what thyroid medication you are on. If you are taking thyroid hormone, thyroid should be taken on an empty stomach, and wait at least 40 min before eating. Robitussin (guaifenesin) peak has a mild stimulant in it. As long as your thyroid levels are normal, this should not be a problem, but if your thyroid levels are high, it could potentially cause more heart racing symptoms. ...Read more
