Does cymbalta affect thyroid med absorption?

Hi, does anyone know if cymbalta and stopping cymbalta affects thyroid medication absorption? I had a thyroidectomie three years ago, initially was fine on Levo, after gallbladder surgery absorption changed and I got pretty hypo. Finally found an endo who’s familiar with the naturally dissected thyroid hormones. But because of hypo I was pretty depressed, anxious and fibromyalgia symptoms so started cymbalta. Just quit final dose two weeks ago and feel like I’m very hypo again. Had blood work done but results haven’t come in yet.

Anyone familiar with cymbalta/ thyroid meds?

Dtchgrl,

Google "Levothyroxine + Cymbalta interaction".

I had my gallbladder removed in 2006 and my thyroid removed in Oct 2015. I am sorry I have never heard of cymbalta what is it? I am well and don't have problems now on the correct dosage.
