Customer Question
I take levothyroxine .150...

I take levothyroxine .150 mg and lisinopril HCTZ 10/12 mg once in the morning; I also drink a ganoderma extract coffe. ([email protected] oz. each )with breakfast. Are there any interactions that I should be aware of ?

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

I take levothyroxine .150 mg 1x daily and 1 lisinopril HCTZ 10/12 mg 1x daily; I’m not allergic to any medications that I’m aware of.

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

I ‘m considered “pre-diabetic” by my doctor; my blood sugar varies between 113 and 125 . I control my condition with diet and excercise. I’v E had vein surgery to treat varicose veins and lymph edema. That’s why I take the lisinopril for the diuretic effects

There are no adverse interactions between the ganoderma extract coffee and your medications so it's fine for you to drink the coffee

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.
