Can Beaus lines be caused by any of the following? Thanks Stress/anxiety Omeprazole Hashimotos Levothyroxine Multivitamins

Or just happen: Most "stress" is actually good -- I need some "stress" to kick me into action so I can be productive and ultimately useful and fulfilled. Very often, "Beau's lines" just happen for no reason whatever. I'm glad you're managing your Hashimoto's, and I just wish everybody were as good an observer of their health as you are.

Can I take levothyroxine and omeprazole together without interactions?

Can I take levothyroxine and omeprazole together without interactions?

Maybe but it depends: Neither epocrates. Com nor drugs. Com found any drug-drug interactions. Several new studies suggest that levothyroxine is best when taken on an empty stomach at night. In truth, as long as you're consistent w/your dosing regimen, we can always adjust your dose when monitoring your labs (via tsh). Ask your pharmacist for his/her opinion (they're specialists in drug timing & interactions).

My doctor prescribed me lactose free thyroxine due to my intolerance, it seems to irritate my stomach though and I have to take an omeprazole with it?

My doctor prescribed me lactose free thyroxine due to my intolerance, it seems to irritate my stomach though and I have to take an omeprazole with it?

Synthroid (thyroxine) has: Such a small amount of lactose in it that I doubt it would irritate your stomach. You could try taking it with some lactase such as Lactaid. Another brand name T4 replacement, Tirosint, doesn't contain lactose, at least as far as I'm aware.

I'm on metoprolol, benicar, omeorazole, allegra, synthroid, (thyroxine) and ativan. Will any of these cause liver kidney or electrolyte issues? Or cardiac issues?

I'm on metoprolol, benicar, omeorazole, allegra, synthroid, (thyroxine) and ativan. Will any of these cause liver kidney or electrolyte issues? Or cardiac issues?

Unlikely: I guess the answer depends on whether you are a glass half empty or a glass half full person. You are not likely to have any of those adverse effects from the medications you listed, however there is no medication that is not associated with rare liver toxicity, and several of the medications on the list might have some of the other side effects you listed. Rarely.

Can omeprazole cure a uti?

UTI: Omeprazole cannot cure a uti. It is a proton pump inhibitor and decreases the acid that is produced in the stomach so it decreases the chance of an ulcer or gastritis. A UTI will involve bacteria infecting the bladder/urine and although it can resolve on its own, often requires antibiotics.
