Hi All. Doing some research for a forum member and discovered that Wind-eze Gel Caps (an anti-wind agent) contain Simeticone (activated Dimeticone), a drug that can reduce the absorption of levothyroxine (and other thyroid medications).
Interestingly, information leaflets for other preparations that contain Simeticone (i.e. Windsetlers) do not contain this warning information. Might be that the Wind-eze contains 'activated Dimeticone' and Windsetler just Simeticone - no idea what the difference is and no time to research further right now.
So beware anything containing Simeticone...or activated Dimeticone...or both 😉...according to the PIL, it could impede absorption of thyroid meds.
Thought I'd post here just in case it's something you haven't heard of (though I doubt that 😉).
It certainly surprised me...but that's not difficult 🙄.
