I just accidentally took my thyroid medication (hypothyroid)

Customer Question
I just accidentally took...

I just accidentally took my thyroid medication (hypothyroid) when I already took it this morning around 11:30am. I'm scared that I may have accidentally overdosed.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I cannot take benedryl, but other than that I don't have any alergies. I take fluoxetine (20mg), metropolol, losartan, amatryptaline (for night to,e bladder control), and vitamins.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I can't think of anything else over than high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, PMDD, and insomnia. I take ambien on an as need basis. I think that's it.

Armor Throid, 30mg, daily. Other than anxiety about taking an extra pill, no symptoms yet.
Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, such double dose of Armour thyroid is not overdose.

As you are not feeling any symptoms so it's a good sign and most likely you will tolerate it.

Miss your next dose in the morning.

And take as directed afterwards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
