Systemic and hypothyroidism

Recommended Posts

Definitely take your medicine if you have a thyroid condition. You are right to make sure meds don't interact with thyroid medicine. When I was anemic I had to take a huge iron pill daily. I took it the same time as my thyroid medicine. I just kept getting more tired. I finally went to the doctor and my thyroid was barely functioning. I found out that iron affects the absorption of thyroid meds.

Hello! Welcome to the forum! I'm new here too. I also have autoimmune hypothyroidism, which I think they call Hoshimotos. To be honest, I don't think I have symptoms, and I'm not on medicine yet because I don't see an endo for a couple more weeks. I do know from family experience that it's a very important medicine, so I have taken the diagnosis seriously even though I basically feel fine. Keep us posted!

Just to clarify according to NHS Choicesthere are 2 different prepayment prescription certificates (PPC) as follows:

 

You can buy a PPC that lasts for three months or for 12 months. From 1 April 2011:

 

•A three-month PPC costs £29.10.

•A 12-month PPC costs £104.00.
