Does anybody know if taking Zopiclone can affect Thyroxine absorption rates?
For around the last couple of months I have taken small amounts of Zopiclone (left over from when I suffered a sudden bereavement) to help me sleep. I’ve been having a stressfull time at work and been very busy and worrying so have tried to sleep better by taking Zopiclone. This has worked in so much I don’t feel as worn out when I’ve taken it because I’ve slept better however the symptoms I had before I was diagnosed, in particular the very dry skin and taste distortion has returned and I don’t know if the two are connected or coincidence. I’m also conscious Zopiclone is a temporary fix.
I also competed in the Ride London Sportive on Sunday cycling to raise money for the charity MIND. Today I am really struggling but did not sleep well last night (hadn’t taken Zopiclone), so I’m wondering if I’ve just worn myself out or not converting well.
I was only just in “range” for T3 conversion when my doctor agreed to test me for this in December 2017.
I’ve got a telephone consultation on Friday 10th August to see if the doctor will agree to me being tested again for everything (including vitamins etc) but this is a different doctor to the one I used to have who has since moved on so I’m hoping that he will agree to this.
Thanks in advance x
