Re: Paracetemol and thyroxine

Niecey, you might find this webiste of use - it's a database of drugs and interactions maintained by the NIH. It's a .gov site and I checked with the Mods - it's ok to post.

BTW, Paracetamol is Acetaminophen so it should be OK.

Re: Paracetemol and thyroxine

Niecey, I know what you mean - I've been doing great all week (just started meds) and today it was like I regressed 10 days. I was dozing on a road trip to visit family and I woke up crying. Feeling better now, but I think I'm coming down with a cold.

I hope you're doing better tonight.

Re: Paracetemol and thyroxine

niecsey , hope you are feeling a little better today
{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}

I take paracetemol and I am on thyroxine , my DR said I could ..
I understand re the crying I do it all the time , I find its best to not try and stop it or try and find a reason for my crying I just cry , let it out then tend to feel a little better later ..

Sara xx
