1.Can I take Thyronorm during pregnancy?
Thyroid hormone is naturally present in the body and is therefore safe to take in pregnancy. In fact, it is very important that pregnant women or those planning to become pregnant have normal thyroid hormone levels to provide a suitable environment for the baby.
If you are already taking thyroid hormone, your dose may need to be increased during pregnancy. Hence, you may have to get your thyroid hormone and TSH levels measured once you know that you are pregnant. You should discuss the timing of thyroid blood tests with your doctor, but often thyroid tests are done every trimester.
2.Does Thyronorm interact with any other medications?
Use of medications such as birth control pills, estrogen, testosterone, some medications for seizures, depression, and cholesterol, and supplements such as iron and calcium may require you to alter the dose of Thyronorm. It is therefore important that you let your doctor know about all the medications or supplements you are taking.
3.What is the dose for Thyronorm?
The dose is individualised on the basis of clinical response and biochemical tests. Regular monitoring of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and Thyronorm is recommended when starting therapy or changing the dose. Do not change the dose or stop the medicine without consulting your doctor.
4.Can I take Thyronorm with tea/coffee/food?
It is best to take Thyronorm on an empty stomach (ideally, first thing in the morning). No tea/coffee, food or milk should be taken 1 hour before and 2 hours after taking this medicine as it affects its absorption.
5.What happens if we consume too much iodine?
In some people, increased dietary iodine intake causes the thyroid gland to make excess of thyroid hormone, leading to a condition called iodine-induced hyperthyroidism. Too much of iodine can also cause thyroid underactivity, called hypothyroidism as excess iodine blocks the thyroid’s ability to produce the hormone.
