Well there is no direct evidence that paxil CR (paroxetine
) and phentermine
may affect TSH levels but the numerous side effects they present that suggest symptoms of hyperthyroidism
may be able to help us deduce that possibility. It would be wise for your doctor to also do T3 and T4 measurements to see if the thyroid function is affected. TSH is secreted by the pituitary gland
and this gland could also be affected some how (a CT scan could help determine if they are any problems at that level).
You should know that there is a possible toxic interaction between paroxetine and phentarmine. It could cause possible serious or life-threatening interaction. I suggest you discuss this with your doctor. It is advised to use alternatives if available (there is risk of serotonin syndrome
Hope this helps
