The warnings that come with Advair say that people with Thyroid disease shouldn't take it. I am a sever asthmatic on 8 medications, but I also have Graves disease and had my thyroid killed. Therefore, I take Amour Thyroid. What is the problem with Advair and thyroid disease? My mother and brother who have hypothyroidism are also on Advair.
I am hypothyroid, taken 2.0 SYNTHROID for 25 years. Started ADVAIR last spring. Last summer my TSH went skyhigh-69.5, then 79.5. Increased synthroid to 2.5, then different med at 3.5. Stopped the ADVAIR which I had started last spring, asthma was doing great. TSH dropped like a rock, now am back to 2.0 synthroid. Just today made the connection.
