In brief: Should be fine.
Many products contain warnings to the effect that if someone has a thyroid condition, they should check with their doctor before using.
Do check with your own doctor who knows you best, but in general, these warnings are to prevent worsening of features of untreated hyperthyroidism. So if someone has treated hyperthyroidism, and normal thyroid levels, they can safely use these products.
