This is a question that only your doctor can answer. Apidexin is a combination of many active ingredients, and these combined with your hypothyroid treatment certainly has the potential for side effects and drug interactions.

It is wonderful that you are being proactive and doing your research before taking a potentially harmful supplement. Please call your doctor, as it is crucial to be prescribed the appropriate doses of each medicine, as even if there are no harmful side effects, there may be specific instructions on *how* to take each drug for your specific condition and health history (for instance, the doses of each may need to be tweaked regarding the amount or frequency).

Let us know what your doctor says!
Have you been trying to lose weight in other ways?
