I'm thinking about taking 100mg of CO10Q daily.
While researching the topic I ran into several sites stating that it can interfere with Thyroid medications. They seem to list only the synthetic Thyroid medications. Does anyone know how extensive this interaction is and if it also applies to natural Thyroid meds as well?
It's highly recommended for hyperthyroidism but there is lots of conflicting information for Hypo.
"Use cautiously in people who have thyroid problems or those taking thyroid agents. CoQ10 may affect thyroid hormone levels and interact with thyroid agents (such as SynthroidÂ®)." - Mayo Clinic
This article even shows a possible interaction with "anabolic androgenic steroids"
"CoQ10 may also interact with acetylsalicylic acid, agents that may affect the immune system, anabolic androgenic steroids, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, anticancer agents" - Mayo Clinic
Since I'm on trt and armour I'm having second thoughts about taking even a minimal daily dose.
I know it's highly recommended for folks on Statins, which I'm not.
I can always try it and see how it goes I guess. Your thoughts?
