Antibiotics and thyroid meds?

After weeks of having colds/flus/etc, I've ended up with a raging throat infection. I started a week of Amoxicillan this evening. I know it'll probably mess with my warfarin (EVERYTHING does), but I'm wondering if anyone has experienced a change in thyroid symptoms/levels while on antibiotics?

any input would be great!

Re: Antibiotics and thyroid meds?

I've been on amoixicillin with my synthroid and it didn't affect my levels or symptoms to speak of.

When I'm sick enough for antibiotics I usually feel so tired/awful from being sick I can't blame any symptoms on my thyroid!

I did try to space the dosing so I wasn't taking the anitbiotic right before/after the synthroid.

Hope you fee better soon!

I appear to have come through unscathed! Hee....I spaced the meds out as well, and took the last dose this morning.
