my husband is taking levothyroxine & metformine. How do they effect each other?
The efficacy of oral hypoglycemic agents such as metformin may be diminished by thyroid hormones such as levothyroxine.
Close monitoring of blood-glucose is recommended if these drugs are given together. Dose adjustments of the metformin may be required.
