OMG I just took an extra med and I'm freaking out
« on: March 11, 2014, 12:42:55 AM »
So in the mornings I have to take my regular thyroid replacement pill - I have hypothyroidism.

At night, I take another pill for IBS.

Well this morning I took my thyroid medicine and when I was going to take my IBS med tonight, I accidentally took the wrong one and doubled up on my thyroid medicine. I'm freaking out!!!

I spoke to a doctor online and she told me I really should be fine. I then asked her what to look for telling me I need to go to the ER? And she said fast heart rate, tremors, anxiety (GREAT!), shakiness, and diarrhea.

Freaking out now! I can feel my heart rate getting faster!

Sounds like you're just freaking yourself out and causing all those symptoms. If your doctor told you that you should be fine I wouldn't worry about it. You can always call a local pharmacy, most retail pharmacies such as Walgreens or CVS have 24 hour pharmacists you can speak to who should be able to give you a better answer.
