are you on synthroid ( thyroid meds) plus Tricor?

Hey everyone, are any of you on synthroid and on Tricor? If you have been reading my posts you will have seen that I have been having problems with shortness of breath and palputations,  Thinking it was my synthroid I started adjusting my dose. Then I did have a slight problem with peanut allergies.  After not eating peanuts, the breathing problems and palputations continued.  Last night I looked up the side effects of tricor ( I started them mid December) by Christmas the problems started.  Seems like the most common side effects are diffuculty breathing , shortness of breath and palputations. Most Hashimoto patients have high cholsetrol, due  to the disease, not by what your eating. and I hope this post helps anyone that happens to be taking both. Me myself, I am stopping the Tricor today.

Do you mean tricare the military insurance? If so you can get  referral from  your doc to see an endocrinologist that specializes in thyroids. I am on Tricare so if you have any questions or need some help just let me know

Tricor is a cholestol lowering drug, nothing to do with insurance
