Couple of weeks: If your anemia is due to iron deficiency and you start taking iron pills, you would see the beginning of the response in a few days, though it may take a few weeks to notice a substantial rise in hemoglobin.

Hormone replacement: Its never a good idea to take a hormone as a supplement unless there is a deficiency. Even in some hormone deficiencies, the drawbacks to replacement outweigh the benefits. While there is some limited evidence that dhea replacement can help specific groups (people with addison's disease for example), adrenal supplements do not have proof that they work at all. ...Read more
Not really: Absorption of each thyroid preparation is a little different, and you should not switch brands, if possible. But both synthroid (thyroxine) and Levothroid are long acting hormones, with a half-life of 1 week. I doubt you would notice a difference with regards to onset of action, for example if you were starting to take them for hypothyroidism. ...Read more

Yes, no: It is quite safe to take these concurrently. Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate is not known to stimulate nor suppress the thyroid but has been shown to reduce symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Ashwagandha balances thyroid function, stimulating underactive thyroids while calming overactive thyroid. It is not known to overstimulate the thyroid. ...Read more
Any brand will do: Counter to what a salesperson might tell you, there's not much money to be made selling vitamin D. As long as the label has a USP DSVP symbol on it, you're pretty assured of its quality. So don't buy fancy brands/names - just make sure it's D3, not D2. For most, 1,000-2,000units each day should be fine. Take enough to bring your 25OH vitamin D above 30ng/mL. Don't check 1,25 diOH vitamin D. ...Read more
Hypothyroidism: Given it's long half-life, we re-check your TSH about 6-8wks after you start Levothyroxine or change your dose. There are many symptoms to hypothyroidism (that's why you're taking Levothyroxine, right?), some of which take longer to resolve than others, but most within that 6-8wk period of time, if you're taking right dose for you. But weight won't magically melt off w/o exercising & eating health ...Read more
