Is taking Synthroid with the ACE diet pill ok?

Is taking Synthroid with the ACE diet pill ok?

Talk to your doctor: The ace diet pills contain caffeine, and other drugs which give you a kick, like caffeine. Think of it like one of those "5 hr energy" drinks. Synthroid boosts your metabolism, and at high doses it does the same, but hopefully your synthroid dose is properly adjusted so that your thyroid is in balance. Do these ace pills put you at risk? Maybe. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

I've had thyroid cancer 2 years ago, I take the name brand synthroid. Is it okay for me to take diet pills?

I've had thyroid cancer 2 years ago, I take the name brand synthroid. Is it okay for me to take diet pills?

No problem: Most thyroid cancers do well after surgery if nodes were neg. and age at surgery under 40. If all is well after surgery which removes a major part if not all of the thyroid, there is a tendency to have low levels of thyroxin requiring oral supplements and patients tend to put on wt. Taking diet pills may even be helpful if there was a significant wt. increase post surgery. ...Read more

COMMIT: Commit to long-term lifestyle change. It is a marathon, not a sprint. Get help from nutritionist and coach. Do not rely on diet pills. You don't say how overweight you are, but losing 1-2 pounds a week is usually sustainable and healthy. Do not starve yourself ("no food") because that will in the long run harm your body. Groups like weight watchers, oa, and tops can help with accountability. ...Read more
