Hi there
Thanks for your query

The symptoms that you have described can be due to a mild allergy to the medicine. It can also be local triggering of cough reflexes caused by ingestion of the tablet. Since it is causing discomfort and pain in abdomen, it is good to take cough suppressant syrup before taking the thyronorm tablet. You can also try a mild anti-allergic medicine. Another trick that may work is taking the mind off the cough by doing some walking and stretching.
It is always good to get the excessive cough symptoms evaluated by a physician, who may recommend some investigations to rule out concurrent infections.

Hope I addressed your concerns.
