Ask the Clinician Health Pro
  • Full Question:

    Hi, my question is: im on Metroporol 50mg 2x a day, i have recently had a thyroidectomy and am on T3 medication only, can Metroporol be safely used with my thyroid meds? Thank you regards Maureen.


    Full Answer:

    Dear Maureen;


    Unfortunately, we can't answer this question. For one thing, there's more than one T3 medication. Beyond that, any checking for interactions we could do wouldn't necessarily really tell us if they're safe for you to take because that could all be changed by any other medication you take for anything including prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, and supplements. The answer could also be different because of other health issues you may have.

    Only your doctor, who is familiar with you and your medical history and has access to your medical records can safely say which medications are safe for you to take.


    Good luck,
