Re: drug interactions
I found an answer to your Nexium question. It was written by Harold J. DeMonaco, MS, Director of Drug Therapy Management at Massachussetts General Hospital, who says there is no interaction between levoT and Nexium. However, there is a problem with most other types of antacids that contain calcium in that the levoT binds to it and can't be absorbed, so don't take Rolaids or anything similar for at least 4 hours after your levoT.
Mary Shomon writes in her book that most of the people she's heard from who tried kelp or other iodine supplements while in treatment for hypoT have felt worse on it. She herself tried it, and quit after she had the same reaction. Seems like you might want to give it up for a while since you feel so bad now.
