hello, avoid overmedicating your self.
Thyroid medications in allopathy is a harmone so hence no too many side effects. Please take the medications regularly, eat well and do regular exercise. Do not skip the doses and get a regular t3 and tsh levels monitored. I hope i have answered your query. Take care

No, it is better to consult a single Doctor for a particular problem, as the drugs could interact or have double effect. The purpose is to control the thyroid function, Allopathy does this very well, I know this as I am an allopathy Doctor. Ayurveda too may do the same, but I am not aware of it, so cant comment. Just be purpose oriented.
