Is taking Zyflamend along with Amlodipine and Methimazole safe?

I would like to stop taking Monica. I have had no bad reaction to it, and have blood work 2-3 times a year. I have some nerve impingement in my neck and some healed herniated discs In my lower back. Pain is not great but annoying....also some minor pain in foot from severed ankle ligaments and healed minor fractures in foot and ankle. I am 71 and take 5 mg amlodipine, 21/2mg methizomole 3 x week (for hyperthyroid). Pain is bearable but without Mobic I do not move right -feels like I am in slow motion and not moving smoothly. Considering taking Zyflamend as suggested by my Podiatrist. How safe would it be with my other meds. (Also take 2000mg vit Don t and coconut oil. I have to stay away from products from the sea.

Diagnosed with autonomous hot thyroid nodule - was given three choices of treatment methimazole, radioactive iodine treatment or surgery. My doc suggested methimazole to start with. He says he s had patients on this drug for THIRTY YEARS but I read it is not good too stay on this drug for long. Is this true.

I went to a thyroid doctor yesterday and had blood tests done. I already in the past was diagnosed as having a low level rating of overactive thyroid. The thyroid doctor said at this point I do not need anything done yet. I have been feeling very fatigued, tired and not very good. I went today to a doctor and she prescribed methimazole twice a day 5 mg tablet. The information which I have states that methimazole intereacts with warfarin. I take warfarin 5mg. once a day. I am concerned about the twice a day doseage of methimazole 5 mg. Friends take Synthyroid half a tablet a day. Should I be concerned and should I call my thyroid doctor and ask if this methimazole 5 mg prescribed by a doctor today is okay.

I have hyperthyroidism and my doctor prescribed methimazole which I have been taking for 13 years, I just went back last Wednesday for my checkup, and my bloodwork was done my doctor s nurse called me the next day and told me that my thyroid was low and that the doctor wanted to reduce my methimazole to 5mg once ad day. I was taking 20 mg before I went back. So my question t you is, If my thyroid is low am I suppose to take a low dose of methimazole? Thank you Sherrie
