Doctor insights on:
Omeprazole And Levothyroxine
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.
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).
I am taking 175mcg of thyroxine after a thyroidectomy for cancer. Is it OK to take the omeprazole that I am already on at the same time as thyroxine?
Yes, you may: There is no drug interaction between these two medicines.
Thyroxine I'm taking irritates my stomach and causes gastritis. I have to take omeprazole with it to stop the irritation is this ok?
Yes: Taking the omeprazole is fine, but check with your doctor to see if there is another medication option that may not be so hard on your stomach.
If someone has minor kidney dysfunction. Can they take allegra 180 mg Benicar 20 mg. Omeprazole 20 mg. Metoprolol 25 mg 2 x daily and Synthroid (thyroxine) 50?
Seems okay: It seems okay to take these medications even if you have minor kidney dysfunction. However your specific circumstance should be discussed with your doctor.
So I was prescribed Benicar 20 for blood pressure and ativan 1mg for anxiety. I'm also on Synthroid (thyroxine) 50 & omeprazole 20. Are these safe to take evryday?
Yes these: Medications will be effective and safe when used in combination.
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?
Levothyroxine: Is best taken in the morning, fasting, an hour before eating to insure absorption. You can take the Prilosec with breakfast.
How far apart should I take my Levothyroxine 88mcg & Omeprozole 40 mg medications in the morning? I take Levothyroxine first.
Generally 3o minutes: Allows the stomach to individually pass each medication. Ask your pharmacist also. He/she will have good advice for you. All the best.

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.
Is it ok to take Prilosec during the evenings since I take levothroxine in the mornings? I have a sore throat, no heart burn. It's acid reflux.

The only adverse reaction reported with use of both together are itching ; fungal dermatiitis.
