Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. There are no reported side effects or interactions between these 2 drugs and also there is no some mechanism which would cause any bad effect in people who are taking thyroid or any other hormonal drug. Just take recommended dosage. Of course,I think that efficiency of such supplements is questionable but if you notice some positive results you can continue with this. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards

Thank you for your reply. I also take calcium pills daily and Fosamax once a week, any side effects or interaction by taking skinny green coffee supplements. Thank you.

Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Well, there are no interactions, but green coffee suppl. may increase the amount of calcium that is flushed out in the urine. This happens if there is intake of caffeine more than 300 mg per day. So you should take less than this or increase dose of calcium pills for 10%. Also,it may increase blood sugar so if you are diabetic,have frequent blood sugar checks. So thats all you should be worried about. Regards
