Thyroid probs: Had hospital app today with... - Thyroid UK
Do you mean amlodipine for high Bp, or amiodarone for tachycardia? Just I have been hypothyroid for 12 years , been given Bp meds for 14 years as part and parcel of diabetes treatment, including amlodipine...so curious to know what was said about it and hypothyroidism. See next post of mine clarifying the two drugs.
Yes I know I'm replying to myself but seems the best place for this after my earlier query. It seems to be amiodarone that is the problem drug re hypothyroidism, it contains 37.5% iodine by weight, and induces hypo increasing the TSH. Google 'how medications affect thyroid function' article - no mention of amlodipine being effective re hypo.
