Can you take phentermine & synthroid.
I take a half of 37.2 phentermine and .150 synthroid can that throw my TSH out of wack.  Are you suppose to take these two together.  What can it cause if anything?

Phentermine does not list thyroid meds or thyroid disease as a caution or a contra-indication, so it should be alright.

You don't want to take ANY drugs or vitamins or supplements at the same time as you take your Synthroid.

Take your Synthroid with a glass of water in the morning. No food or anything for an hour. Coffee is ok, cream or milk is a major no-no.

Some meds or supplements should be spaced several hours later.

You can look up drug interactions here;

Good idea to look up interactions but best to call your pharmacy or dr and use the other resources for "guidance only" as you await to hear from your medical professional.
