Question Thyroid Meds and Inderal

I am hypothyroid. Looking for info on the internet as to why I might be feeling less than wonderful, I ran across the information that people with thyroid disorders should not take Inderal.

I have been taking it for 25 years or so for migraine headaches (they have gone away completely). My current doctor, even though I have never been diagnosed with high blood pressure, doesn't think I should stop taking it.

Has anyone had a problem mixing thyroid medications with Inderal?

Thanks for any info you can offer.

Re: Thyroid Meds and Inderal

When I first started on Inderal 10 years ago along with thyroid medicine it affected my liver values and had to stop taking it...I was very sick from the combination and ended up in the hospital where they didn't believe me and gave me MORE Inderal. Well I figured out right away that doctors are not up on thyroid conditions so I just say I am allergic to it and I guess I am. I use something else.

Re: Thyroid Meds and Inderal

AnnD, thanks for your response.

I take Armour Thyroid; which thyroid medication were you taking?

And what symptoms were you having when you ended up in the hospital?
