Is moclobemide safe to take if I have hypothyroidism (hashimoto's)?

Pharmacist. You are correct in inquiring about possible interactions of moclobemide when you are taking thyroid supplements or any other medications as that class of antidepressants are more apt to cause interactions. You should ask your pharmacist and prescribing psychiatrist for this advice as the average physician has little experience with that class of antidepressants.

I have hypothyroidism (hashimoto`s disease) I take 150 mcg of levothyroxine, is that okj?

Depends. Every person who needs thyroid medication, has to have their dose individualized, based on both their clinical symptoms and their labs. So one person might be on 150 mcg and another similarly sized and affected person might only be on 75 mcg and yet, based on their symptoms and labs, they are on the correct dose. So, truly the answer depends on a trained physician's skill and recommendations. Read more...

I take 75mcg of levothyroxine daily for hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's) and a goitre. What would happen if I stopped taking my medication?

Nothing good. B"sd Most likely you would become hypothyroid, which often causes symptoms including fatigue, cognitive decline (especially for math) and signs ranging from mild - dry skin, constipation - to life threatening - myxedema coma. Goitre is also likely to grow larger and could even cause compressive symptoms such as difficulty swallowing and breathing and hoarseness. Glad to discuss in more detail. Read more...

I have hashimoto's thyroiditis/hypothyroidism and presently taking levothyroxine. Heard a lot of good things about zyflamend but is it safe for me?

Zyflamend safety. The website claims the product stimulates a "whole-body healthy inflammation response". You won't find this concept in a medical textbook. Personally, i would prefer my body's parts not all be inflamed at the same time! it's not a hugely complex formula; it contains turmeric, green tea, rosemary, ginger, basil, barberry, oregano and 3 chinese herbs. Google each one. Don't stop your medication. Read more...
Thyroid Supplements. There is not evidence that herbal or nutritional remedies can help hypothyroidism. For the vast majority of individuals levothyroxine supplies the body with adequate replacement of the identical hormone which the body produces. Most (but not all) make T3 (liothyronine) naturally from the T4 in a well regulated pattern. See your physician if you feel symptomatic despite therapy. Doses may need adjustment. Read more...

I have allergies and hypothyroidism (caused by hashimoto). Any connection? Also, am I more likely to get cancer or diseases? I take levothyroxine.

No To All Questions. No real connection between hashimotos and cancer, allergies or other diseases. Read more...
Possible connection. Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disease & allergies are also related to an overactive immune system. Thyroiditis increases risk of thyroid cancer but even so thyroid cancer is rare. Autoimmune disease is triggered by environmental toxins & microbes. Read the autoimmune epidemic by nakazawa. I advise seeing a holistic doctor who can address the underlying causes:see http://www.Abihm.Org/search-doctors. Read more...

Yes and yes. Hypothyroidism can interfere with getting pregnant. The treatment is with the same hormone that hypothyroid people don't make enough of, and simply brings them back to where they should have been in the first place. Read more...
