even though not directly related, you want to take something that does not contain pseudo-ephedrine..

I would head to your local pharmacy and ask the pharmacist to show you the OTC options they currently carry that do not contain this certain ingredient...

contact your MD and follow the advice of the on-call doctor.

Drug Interactions Checker
Drug interaction results for the following 2 drug(s):

pseudoephedrine (sudafed)
levothyroxine (synthroid)

Interactions between your selected drugs
No results found - however, this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacist.

Other drugs that your selected drugs interact with
• There are 216 other drugs known to interact with sudafed (pseudoephedrine)

• There are 1141 other drugs known to interact with synthroid (levothyroxine)

I checked sudafed but you can go to this link and check other decongestants that you would like to take. Check to see if they interact in any negative way with synthroid.

Q. What about Over the Counter Drugs Like Cough Medicines, Cold Medicines, Decongestants?

Most packages of over-the-counter cough and cold medicines and decongestants say "Do not take if you have one of the following..." and then goes on to list thyroid disease. While you should always check with your doctor, it's generally understood that this warning is more applicable for people with hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) than hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). Because these drugs contain stimulants, the logic is for someone with hyperthyroidism to avoid adding even further stimulation or strain on the heart from these drugs. That said, some people with hypothyroidism do find that they become sensitive to ingredients like pseudoephedrine, what you'd typically find in Sudafed or other decongestants. Some doctors will recomend you try only a partial dose, and see if you have a reaction, and only then try to work you way up to the normal dose and see if it bothers you.


I take flonase.

Check Webmd...it is a good site checked by doctors

I feel your pain! Avoid anything with sudafed ingredients. On the label underneath the ingredients there is usually a disclaimer or blurb that says "consult your doctor before taking this medication if your have a thyroid disorder or have high blood pressure"
