Lupus Meds and Thyroid Medications


I'm currently taking Synthroid 137 mcg daily and 2.5 mcg Cytomel daily for thyroid problems. Last week I was diagnosed with Lupus after a very bad flare that send me to the hospital. My doctors are still doing test before start treatment for the Lupus. I know you need to be careful with the medications you mix with your thyroid treatment. Do you have experience taking your thyroid medication and lupus meds? I'm not sure what I'll be taking. I usually take Synthroid at night before going to bed and Cytomel mid-morning. I'll appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

Re: Lupus Meds and Thyroid Medications

I've got an autoimmune disease (or 3) too. I have been taking Plaquenil for the last 6 months or so to try and beat it back into remission. I take my Synthroid anywhere from 4am to 6am. Then I wait 4 hours and take everything else (including the Plaquenil).

What's your ANA titre? (Mine's currently 1:640.)
