Armour Thyroid Drug Interactions
Several medications could cause negative interactions with Armour Thyroid. Drug interactions may occur if Armour Thyroid is taken with antacids or gas-relieving medicines, calcium supplements, theophylline, or certain seizure medications. These Armour Thyroid drug interactions can prevent the thyroid drug from being absorbed into the digestive tract, so it is important to take these medicines at least a few hours apart.
