QUESTION: How does Levothyroxine act with ATIVAN
QUESTION: Do you think the thyroid doc will put me tomorrow again on this.
You know I've been with chills, low systolic and sometimes higher distolic - what does this all mean.
QUESTION 1-what thyroid medication would even out my ATIVAN nightmare
so I can get off of it like I've been doing without any additional problems?
I know you are not a thyroid specialist but would appreciate if you look into this for me.
