My TSH is 6.28 &i take thyroxine sodium 25umg tab everyday. I wanna build muscles, is it safe to have whey protein shakes? (brand-on whey protein)

I don't see any: Problem with u taking whey protein. Drink lots of water with it. Let your dr adjust your thyroid hormone based on your TSH in 3 months. Take care!

Hi Is it a problem to take syntroid in the morning and have a protein shake 15 min later?

Timing = absorption: It is usually advised to take Thyroid medication on an empty stomach in the morning and 30 min. Prior to anything other than water. There is thyroid medication that absorbs well even with food. Timing of using thyroid is important and can be individualized.

Shaking sometimes im type two diabetoc on meformin thyroxine rampril?

See your doctor: In terms of your condition now, low blood sugar can cause shaking or tremor but so can high level of thyroid as in over treatment. These may not be the causes of your problem and it is best to see your doctor to make a decision.

I take zoloft, (sertraline) are there any interactions between Zoloft (sertraline) and herbalife shakes?

Zoloft (sertraline) and herbs: When taking zoloft, (sertraline) be careful not to take St John's wart ginkgo biloba, 5 ht and l-tryptophan as they can increase serotonin. Check if herbalife products contain these ingredients.

Can I take valium, synthroid, (thyroxine) and percocet with Dulcolax sensitive stomache for women for constipation? I am afraid to mix and I only this laxative available and I have not defecated pain medication.

Can I take valium, synthroid, (thyroxine) and percocet with Dulcolax sensitive stomache for women for constipation? I am afraid to mix and I only this laxative available and I have not defecated pain medication.

Yes: However, am concerned about combination of valium and percocet. Both are sedating and can mix in a deadly cocktail. Very worrisome. Percocet is the cause of constipation--any way to cut back or talk to doctor about alternative pain control measures? Increase fluids, fiber, consider MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) which is gentle and effective too. Dulcolax tends to cause cramping; less so with miralax (polyethylene glycol).

Is it okay to drink muscle milk shake while on Accutane medication?

Is it okay to drink muscle milk shake while on Accutane medication?

Yes!: There are many resources that physicians & pharmacists rely upon regarding drug information. I like www. Epocrates. Com & www. Drugs. Com. While there are drug-drug interactions w/isotretinoin, there doesn't appear to be any nutritional issues (http://www. Drugs. Com/accutane.Html). You should always feel comfortable asking questions of your dispensing pharmacist & prescribing physician. Good luck!

When I drink too much alcohol I start to shake, is this because of my medication escitalopram?

When I drink too much alcohol I start to shake, is this because of my medication escitalopram?

Sigh: You are on Lexapro (escitalopram) because you are depressed, and you are telling me you are drinking heavily! This is very bad for your depression and your overall health, and doesn't allow your medication to work. Talk to your doctor and get help! You should not be drinking even socially, let alone heavily. The shaking may indeed be a reaction to the combo. I am more concerned about ur drinking than shaking.

Can my medication, synthroid, (thyroxine) cause my abdomine to swell?

No: Synthroid (thyroxine) is a duplicate of what your thyroid gland normally produces. As such it can only function like a normal thyroid, as long as you are on the correct dose, there are no adverse side effects.

Is there any medication I can have if I ran out of tremadols im starting to shake?

Is there any medication I can have if I ran out of tremadols im starting to shake?

Visit ER or: Urgent care if your physician is not available. Tramadol is a rather unique analgesic drug that is indicated for moderate to moderately severe pain. Although it binds to mu receptors, tramadol is not technically classified as an opioid analgesic. Hope it helps.

Can I take gugulipid and Synthroid (thyroxine) medication at the same time?

Can I take gugulipid and Synthroid (thyroxine) medication at the same time?

Yes, but: Guggul can improve thyroid functioning, so you may need less synthroid (thyroxine). You should be sure to have your thyroid checked periodically while you are taking guggul (or if you stop) to be sure you don't need to change your sythroid dose.

Ate there any interactions between synthroid, hydromet and levaquin (levofloxacin)?

No: But I would recommend synthroid (thyroxine) to be taken always on its own without food either early in morning or bedtime for maximal absorption.

Is it okay to skip my Synthroid (thyroxine) medication? I am waiting for a refill and it is taking a long time.

Yes, but: Missing a couple days should be ok but symptoms of hypothroidism will slowly return if you don't restart your meds.

What are some techniques to cope with anxiety? My parents don't want me on medication but I shake constantly and I worry about every single thing I do

What are some techniques to cope with anxiety? My parents don't want me on medication but I shake constantly and I worry about every single thing I do

General Anxiety: If you are medically cleared for any physical disorder, I would suggest trying some cognitive/behavioral therapy. Medication is not always necessary and you could be taught techniques to control your thinking and physical reactions. By the way, the worst thing you could be doing is panicking about the anxiety- this always makes things worse.

Hi, I am currently in thyroxine. Is it ok to drink peppermint tea? I have heard it can affect my medication. Thanks Jo.

Hi, I am currently in thyroxine. Is it ok to drink peppermint tea? I have heard it can affect my medication. Thanks Jo.

OK as far as known: There is relatively research on the interactions of drugs and herbs but I am not aware of any evidence that thyroxine and peppermint tea interact. See http://tinyurl. Com/nxfsatt for a good article on known thyroxine interactions. This article discusses a surprising number of interactions between peppermint and meds but does not mention thyroxine: http://tinyurl.
