Can i take thyroxine and diane 35 for pcos treatment? At same time a day? Plus gloco phage

No issues: You should readily be able to take all three medications without issue. Though remember, levothyroxine absorption can be affected by the types of food/supplementation you may take at the same time, though the effect is rather small. ...Read more

Obese. Supposed to take metformin for pcos & Synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroid. Had severe diarrhea, so stopped taking. Now can't lose any significant weight?

Obese. Supposed to take metformin for pcos & Synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroid. Had severe diarrhea, so stopped taking. Now can't lose any significant weight?

See your doctor: Metformin can cause diarrhea, and some people cannot take it, but most can if they work their way up slowly. Begin at just 500 mg/day, and then after a few days increase to 500 2x/day. The body usually gets used to it. All this requires careful management, and i recommend discussing this with your doctor. Are you on the right dose of synthroid (thyroxine)? ...Read more

TSH 3 & PCOS. Took metformin for 2 yrs then stopped. Now on Synthroid (thyroxine) 50mcg & Prozac 20mg. Still tired, fatigue. Any supplementation?

With normal TSH fatigue is nonspecific.: Although the TSH level is in the upper mid range of normal, your dose could be slightly adjusted upward to for example 75 µg daily. Your fatigue could be secondary to underlying depression for which you are taking medication for. Metformin is commonly used in PCOS for normalizing periods and ovulation. Have your vitamin D levels checked. ...Read more

Hypothyroidism: You're OB-gyn was correct for prescribing thyroxine for your hypothyroidism. TSH of 23 is fairly high. It is possible that the dose will need to be cut down a bit. Was this increased from a prior dose or were you just diagnosed as hypothyroid and this is your starting dose. You're doc should also check your calcium levels as low calcium can cause these symptoms as well. ...Read more

I have pcos. I'm on 500mg metformin and 100mcg levothyroxine. Can missing doses of my meds cause me to miss my period?

I have pcos.  I'm on 500mg metformin and 100mcg levothyroxine. Can missing doses of my meds cause me to miss my period?

Yes: You likely have to miss more than 1 or 2 pills to cause you to miss your period. Women with pcos often miss periods, though and these medications aren't meant or intended to regulate your periods. At 23, if you're not trying to conceive and if you miss periods, you should be on birth control to help prevent pre-cancer of the uterus. Women with pcos = higher estrogen. ...Read more

I take low dose  synthroid, (thyroxine) is it ok to take l- carnitine?

It won't: affect the Synthroid, (thyroxine) but won't help you either, unless you just like putting unknown toxins in your body and wasting your money. Don't get your scientific information from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more
