Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health concern and following is/are clarifications and recommended dosage schedule and dietary regime:

1.Since you are taking alternative medicine for underactive thyroid, please remember
i. There is no substitute of hormone in any –pathy thus check with thyroid values every 3 months [it could be the other way around i.e. no hormone no lowering of value rather than drug drug interaction]
ii. Take: iodized salt,sea food,garlic,onions,meat,chicken,salmon,tuna,whole unrefined grains,dairy products,banana,egg,low fat milk,mushrooms,guava, carrots,cucumber,black beans,navy beans,red kidney beans,split beans,black pepper,cinnamon,turmeric,mint,coriander,apple,apricots,olive oil,cherries, dates,kiwi,papaya,pineapple,brown rice,prunes,coconut oil

- Avoid: linseed/flax oil,peanuts,walnuts XXXXXXX turnip,green mustard,mustard, cauliflower,peaches,coffee,spinach,cabbage,soybean,canlola oil,radish,sweet potato, white bread, white flour, junk food, pears,millet

2. As tryptomer [amitriptylline] apart from bed wetting in children,prophylaxis of migraine, neuropathic pain it is also used in Depression and it may cause ADR [adverse drug reaction] which are normally present as symptoms in Hypothyroid like: constipation, dry mouth,fatigue,dizziness,confusion

Dose: take kanchnar guggullu in morning and tryptomer at night, but Thyroxine should be incorporated.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for reverting back

1. As I usually prescribe (if needed) tryptomer only at bed time so cannot comment upon the dosage schedule of other doctor.

2. Kanchnar gugullu should be given along with Chandraprabha vati and yograj gugull and not in single formulation.

3. Since it is very difficult to comment on drug drug interactions (if any) without any clinical trials/research studies thus do not change/taper or stop any drug without first consulting your attending Physician

I am 45 years of age. Going thru quite a lot stress for past few years. 10th Dec I felt slight chest pain n discomft n high bp with shortness of breath. Went to dr in the night itself. Got all the tests done including ECG N CT angio N various blood tests. Everything came perfect except that cholestrol is 276. Dr says it was an anxiety attack. Dr here prescribed few medicines. Rozavel f- daily 1, Betacap TR 40- DAILY 1, Olimesar20 daily 1. n one sleeping pill Tryptomer. After the medicines, I feel slight pain in my back / shoulder muscles n feel that heart is ponding in the night n generally feel drowsy. BP also comes 98 / 52 or 91/ 48 but pulse rate is around 70 / 75. After having glucose i feel better. What could be the reason? My menopause is also approaching.

I am writing on here as a last ditched attempt to find my mother help it started about 11yrs ago when she woke me from my sleep grey,struggling to breath and holding her chest she was imediately rushed into hospital where her symtoms disappeared and did so for years until she became tired all the time, stopping for naps on the roadside in work.then last year another episode rared its ugly head and she was admitted once again only to find the doctors telling her that it was all in her head, she has an irregular heartbeat and stress seemed to be the cause. shes had a few episodes since and had a reveal devise fitted which showed slight abnormalities,then another attack occured so she was fitted with a pacemaker. my mums 47yrs old and very fit and healthy they told her to stop the gym and, relax more but since the pacemaker my mums ill she looks grey all the time and currently on holiday in scotland for her birthday (today) and has been rushed into hospital again. the pace maker is supposed to make her life better but to me its keeping a half dead woman alive. i hate to see her like this and im fed up of her being passed around pillar to post from stress to mental problems. there is a pattern my grandfather died in 2000 when he went to sleep and his heart stopped. the same with his mother this cant be coincidence surely?. im worried for my brothers and sisters and there children. any advise or helpful information would be gratefully excepted. thankyou keli
