I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Can i take this medication in addition to other one?

I take Synthroid 0.112 mg daily. May I safely take Actialin in addition. I had my tryroid killed at age 27 with radio active iodine at the age of 28. I am now 66, and recently my Doctor lowered my Synthroid from 0.150 mg so that it would not overtax my organs?

Hi,

Yes, you can safely take it with levothyroxine. There is no reported side effects.
Dose of levothyroxine are titrated according to clinical judgement and thyroid levels.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi -- I am in the midst of a mercury detox regime which was started in 2010. About 9 months after starting I experienced severe quadriceps spasm that came on after a couple of hours of sleep at night. Abductor and adductor muscles also seemed involved. I started on a trace mineral supplement and they seemed to disappear. This last week I ve again started having the spasms, even aware of the potential of spasm during the day. I take about 1200 mg of calcium and 800 mg magnesium in addition to the trace mins. No other muscles or muscle groups are involved in spasm or painful. I take Losarten, Armour Thyroid, minocycline for Rosesa and Metanex for MTHFR mutation. All of my labs have been normal. I don t seem to be having pain with exercise or decrease in strength. Any suggestions?

For about the last 6 months, both of my eyes are swollen when I wake up in the morning. The swelling goes down after I am up for a while. I also wake up during the night with a racing heart and feeling hot. I feel very fatigued when I wake up, like I did not get a good night sleep. I have Graves disease that I was treated for with radioactive iodine. My thyroid levels were fine last checked. What else could be causing this?
