I take .88 levothyroxine daily for hypothyroidism. I aso use CBD oil for anxiety and sleep. Are there any known interactions between these two medications?
A published article from the Harvard Medical School states that researchers at the Penn State College of Medicine identified 57 drugs that could seriously interact with CBD oil:
"Potentially serious drug interactions with CBD included:
a common blood thinner, warfarin
a heart rhythm medication, amiodarone
a thyroid medication, levothyroxine
several medications for seizure, including clobazam, lamotrigine, and valproate."
The article doesn't go into great deal about the potential interaction but you'd be wise to discuss this with your doctor and/or pharmacist.
