Can I take amberen (for menopause) with levothyriodxine thyroid medication?

Can I take amberen (for menopause) with levothyriodxine thyroid medication?

Yes, but: Amberen doesn't really work for menopause. There are some decent ingredients in amberen, but it also contains msg, which may be a neurotoxin, particularly in sensitive individuals. The studies listed on amberen's site are of poor quality or are animal studies. I have had several patients try amberen and none have had improvement in symptoms. But you can take it with levothyroxine. ...Read more
