User:Hi Doctor
My name is XXXXXXX and I am 33 years old.
I am having hypothyroid and PCOD. I am already on 75 mcg thyronorm tablet.
Along with this, I am taking following ayurvedic medicine (from Patanjali).
Before food(2 times a day):
A mix of Trikuta churna(30g)+Beheda churna (30g)+Prabala Panchamrat(5g) with honey
XXXXXXX Kayakapl vati(2tablets for acne)
After food(2 times a day):
Kanchanaur guggul(2 tablets)
Vridhivadhika vati(2 tablets)
Arogyavardhini vati(2tablets)
After being on the above medication for 4 months, I got my thyroid test done yesterday, it was 3 in normal range.
However, my acne is not stopping and I started having upset stomach.
Please suggest, whether I am on the right track or what should I do.
