Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Oxyelite pro increases the serotonin levels in the body. Oxyelite pro contains Bauhinia purpurea extract, a herbal ingredient which is thought to cause a natural adjustment in thyroid hormone levels T3 and T4.

T3 hormone is partly responsible for your metabolic rate and if you are having hypothyroidism and taking levothyroxine then it is advisable not to take oxylite pro as it may interfere with the thyroid management of the drug.

If you are to take oxyelite pro, then take it only under your endocrinologist’s supervision.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us.

Wishing you good health.

Hello,

Thanks for writing back to me.

Levothyroxine is a replacement for a hormone that is normally produced by your thyroid gland to regulate the body's energy and metabolism. This medicine is given when the thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. In other words, it is given in hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism means that your thyroid gland is not making enough thyroid hormone.

As you are suffering from hypothyroidism, oxyelite pro may worsen the condition. Hence, it is advisable not to take this drug.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries, then please do not hesitate in writing to us.
