I am 33 years old. Planning to conceive. I hv been recently detected to have high bp and hypothyroidism. Started medication. I am allergic to labetalol. Depin retard I am having oedema. Olmezest beta suited me well. But I want to take medication which is suitable for pregnancy. Can you please suggest me.

Hello, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. I learn that you have Hypothyroidism and hypertension. But there is absolutely no mention of necessary details like T4, T3 & TSH levels, BP readings, dosage of Levothyroxine being taken and also dosage of other drugs taken. Without any of these details, it is difficult to give any opinion. In pregnancy first choice drug for hypertension is Methyledopa, then Labetolo and Nifedipine. Olmesartan is contraindicated. Plus if you want to conceive, then TSH should be maintained < 2.5 mU/L. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.
