Re: Antibiotics for thyroid?
I guess it's "ok" in that it won't hurt, but it isn't likely to help anything. Even if the swelling is due to temporary thyroiditis, that's a viral infection for which antibiotics do nothing. If it's the permanent kind of thyroiditis (due to Hashimoto's disease), an a.b. won't help, either.
It's not the usual protocol for thyroid disorders, period.
