Re: Thyroid & cough syrup
There shouldn't be a reaction that I know of to Dextromethorphan or Guaifenesin. However, we are all different, so what is true for me might not apply to you.
Something to keep in mind is that with hypothyroidism, our bodies are running in slow-motion, chemically. This means that taking the "normal" adult dose can lead to higher blood levels of the medication for longer times than for the average person. It might be better to take a smaller dose (I recommend starting at half of the adult dose), as maybe you are experiencing the effects of too much of the Dextromethorphan. Dextromethorphan is sometimes abused for its dissociative effects.
I am not a doctor, nor have I ever played one on TV...
