I'm on 100mgs of thyroxine for hypothyroidism. I'm trying for a baby can I take a preconception vitamin with iodine in it 150mg. Will it interact. ?
That's fine: Hi. It's fine to take that prenatal vitamin with that iodine; it won't interact with your l-thyroxine.

How long it might take to replete the B12 storage in the body from low 200pg/ml and see improvement in deficiency symptoms, with a 1000mcg/day dose?
If your B12 is low: chances are you need to replace it the rest of your life. Using 2 mg by mouth may over ride the problem with absorption.

I have about 350 patients on this form. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
