I was wondering if anyone knows if you can take oral HRT at the same time as thyroid meds (levo and T3). I can't find anything that says one way or the other. I take so many flipping pills that need four hours between doses four times a day, that I'm running out of hours, unless I stay up til 1am. I've only been on it 3 days so if it's wrong to take it together I wouldn't notice any side effects yet.
My other question is not thyroid related, but because thyroid problems often kick off at a certain age, I'm hoping this question can link in if that's ok? I have allergies to plasters and even the hypoallergenic dressings that are used in hospital, you know the see through ones that go over a surgical wound or hold a cannula in place? My skin blisters and I end up, (particularly after surgery because I have rubbish veins so usually need a new cannula site every two hours), looking like I've been flayed alive. My endo that started me on HRT and recommended the patch as the best method of delivery. I take PPIs because I have to take twice daily anti-inflammatories for another illness so I need the protection for my stomach, as it's a chronic illness, so involves daily long term use of Naproxen. I leave four hours either side for thyroid meds and have left the same gap for oral HRT, but know that PPIs can affect the absorption of other medications. I have a lot going on, so it's difficult to get the timings right, but I'm very nervous about using the patch that is changed every two weeks because of the adhesive problem.
Is there anyone out there who has silly skin like mine and have had problems with the patch adhesive, or even better someone who has silly skin like mine and has found the patch tolerable.
Sorry for the long post, I have a lot going on, and I know people will say I shouldn't take a PPI, which is why I've explained why I have to
