I am currently in hospital for a breakdown and being given palperidone injections which I dont want to have, though unfortunately I have no say in this. However, I would like to know if this medication reduces the effect of my thyroid medication. I normally take 125mcg of thyroxine/eltroxin and 25mcg uni pharma T3. In hospital, I am being given what is prescrbed to me 125mcg of thyroxine and 20mcg of T3. I have an endo in Cardiff and he is aware of what I have actually been taken and at last appointment he was changing me to Armour Thyroid as at my last appointment in February. I only found out today that he is on long-term sick leave and he was writing to my gp about the Armour Thyroid but this has not yet been done because he is off sick.
Does anyone know if anti-psychotic medication reduces the effect of thyroid meds - I currently have psychotic depression and will be in hosp for a few months x
