Hi. Thanks for your query and for using Health Care Magic.

You are currently taking Eltroxin 100 mcg/150 mcg alternate day for hypothyroidism.
Now you have started Proagri 9.

Proagri 9 is L- arginine supplement. Its an amino acid supplement and it does not have any interaction with Eltroxin.
SO you can safely take both the medications.

Get your TSH done regularly.

Hope this answers your query.
Thanks and Regards,

Dr Kiran

Hi there, my mum has been taking Eltroxin for the last 10 years. On a recent visit to her dentist , she was told that she has gum disease that is now causing her teeth to come away from the bone . Could this be caused from a side effect from taking the Eltroxin for so long?

Hi, I have been put on low dose of eltroxin for a slightly under active thyroid. I have been on it two and a half months. Since taking it my cycles have been 22 days and 23 days long. My cycle has always been 28-30 days. Is this a side effect and should I stop taking it?

Hi, I want to know if u take eltroxin 25mcg like twice a week, is it dangerous? I have gained weight over the last few years and feeling fatigue, and also feel my concentration is not as it was, of course many diagnoses can be possible and I should not try medications here and there but still I believe my thyroids are maybe the cause of not producing in off tyroxine and my metabolism is extremely slow. My diet is well balanced and I m taking very well care of clean eating. So again would it make sense to try taking a small dose of eltroxine to see if there is any improvement in my current situation

Responding to the question about taking l-arginine and feeling like stuck n the chest. Five days ago the same thing happened to me while taking l-arginine. I normally take 5 grams (4 large pills) very late at night/early morning so as not to compete with other aminos (food). On this particular night, after a late night of partying, I took my normal dosage, except, I don t remember exactly what I did and very likely took without much water...AND immediately passed out. The result was a feeling of something stuck in my chest the next morning which I ignored for several days. After an unpleasant visit to a gastroenterologist (is that a word?) today, I was diagnosed with an esophageal ulcer. The diagnosis was that a pill likely burned my esophagus, and in my case, the likely culprit being l-arginine. While it may have occurred with another type of pill taking under my circumstances, in my case it was arginine. I now have a 4-5 week excruciating healing process which means limited meals and even more likely minimal workouts since you can t workout if you can t eat. What I m taking away from this; do NOT take l-arginine, or any other pill supplement, in the middle of the night where you risk it sitting. If and when I m able to start eating normal again, I will take the arginine very early in the morning before my morning workout, and I will crush the pills. Yeah I know there is already likely a powder form, but I have a full bottle of pills. Hope someone can learn from this since although I did much research before using arginine, not a single mention of this. Interestingly, of the 4 doctors I spoke to over the last 2 days, only one had even heard of arginine?

Hi, I'm a healthy, VERY active 28 yr old male....I body build, 6 foot 210 lbs and I'm a nurse, and frankly i'm tired of self-diagnosing myself--i need help! >> I think i have hemorrhoids, and have itching around the anus with what look like tiny welts...really uncomfortable BMs accompanied by bleeding, burning...itching is more severe at night; i've tried Preparation H and suppositories, but i think i may be allergic cause it causes temporary burning, and not much relief associated with use... witch hazel burns like hell; what should i do? How do i treat this? Is this due to supplements i'm taking, like GNC testosterone boosters, creatines, L-arginine supplements? I dont know where to start
