In brief: Yes but no
Should not be contraindicated if you are on the proper dose of synthroid (thyroxine).
However I am not sure if adipex is a good medication to take regardless.

In brief: Possibly not
Because the adipex can increase heart rate and the synthroid (thyroxine) can increase heart rate, the two together could increase heart rate too much.
