Need your input. I recently hurt my back and caused sciatica. I could hardly walk and after a week I went to the docs who put me on steroids. They worked the first day and then as you ramp the dose down the pain crept back. The literature does not spell out any drug interactions between Steroids (Dexamethasone) and Thyroxine (Activis Armour NDT) which, I think, probably means "maybe".
Now coincidently I had a refill of my thyroid meds just before I hurt my back, that would be about March 1st. I am suspecting my problem could also be attributed to altered thyroid meds from Activis - I don't know.
My questions are these:
Has anyone had adverse reaction to taking steroids while on thyroxine meds?
Has anyone had a recent batch of Activis Armour NDT and experienced hypothyroidic symptoms, especially leg pains?
I am in very bad shape at a the moment and would appreciate any input, thank you.
