Hypothyroidism & Allegra
i have been diagoned with higher TSH value (6.76) ...a hypothyroidism condition. I was on antiallergic medicine (Allegra-180 mg/day)  for a year about two year back. I wish to know if my hypothyroidism is the result of one year Allegra intake ? I will appreciate the information and help.
thanks

Well I have had Hashimoto for the past 10 years, and I also have had allergy problems and have taken Allegra D for the past 4 years. I don't think allegra had anything to do with my hashimoto/hypothyroid.

Allegra doesn't cause hypothyroidism. I myself take it and have for a while. In fact Allegra is the only allergy medication that I can take.  :)
