Hi Doctors, My wife takes syntroy, can she take green coffee extract to lose weight? Joe
Do you mean Synthroid?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, I'm sorry I mispelled.

No problem...

There is no documented interaction between green coffee extract and Synthroid, HOWEVER, supplements do not have to undergo the type of interaction testing required of prescription medication.

As with all supplements, I advise people to discuss use of the supplement with their personal physician. If your wife was my patient, I would want to check her thyroid hormone levels a few times over the next several months if she were to start using this product.
