BEFORE TAKING MYTHYROX
Do not take MyThyrox:
- If you are hypersensitive (allergic) to myo-inositol, selenium or any of the other ingredients.
- Take special care with MyThyrox if you have diabetes and are taking anti-diabetic medicines, as your blood sugar levels might drop too low with the simultaneous use of myo-inositol.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding:
Safety in pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established.
Driving and using machinery:
MyThyrox does not affect your driving ability or the ability to use or operate machinery.
Taking other medicines with MyThyrox:
Always tell your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professional if you are taking any other medicine. (This includes complementary or traditional medicines). Myo-inositol may interfere with medications that diabetics use to control blood sugar and might increase the risk of too low blood sugar. Selenium may interfere with medicines taken to slow down blood clotting and medicine taken if you suffer from high blood cholesterol.
