Hi Sir, I want to know that if TSH level is 10.75 then what will happen if someone taking Dilantin. Is it increases the TSH level or decrease the TSH level? T3 and T4 are normal. Is it make significant effects on T3 and T4 also. Is taking Dilantin with thyroid supplement is safe?

I don't think so. Its not proven. So don't think on that just control you thyroid by having yoga and medicine. Take care.
