    Sinus Infection & Hypo

    I went to the Dr today because I have a bad sinus infection. He gave me a Z-Pak. I take my Synthroid at midnight. Is there any time frame between the thyroid meds and a antibiotic?
    Also..I've been taking the synthroid for 17 days now and I have broken out in hives and a bad rash on my throat. Is this a side affect of the med? My PCP didn't know..funny huh?
    Good news though..I finally found a Dr who will put me on Armour and I have a appt on Monday to see him. He's only a PCP but I'm not getting anywhere with my Endo so I may as well try this route.
    Wish me luck.

    Thanks,
    Annie

    I think you should space the meds and antibiotic apart as much as poosible.

    Not sure if the problems you are having are side effects of Synthroid or not, but a lot of people seem to have trouble with it, you may be allergic to one of the binders or fillers that is in it.

    Good luck with the Armour dr on Monday.

    you may be allergic to synthroid, or it may be just a symptom of being hypo -- hard to tell, but since you're going to a PCP who will prescribe armour, you're much better off ...

    jb

    ~and about the antibiotic -- just make sure that there's an optimal 4-hour gap, between taking the synthroid and the antiB ... what's a Z-pak? is it just one pill a day?

    ~~and you do know that sinus troubles are symptomatic of being hypo?? and you might get a vaginal yeast infection from taking the antiB's -- i did, and bought one of those yeast kits ...
