That's not a lot. That's slightly more than
one grain; not a lot. Could you take the SJW
and then increase the thyroid SLIGHTLY to
compensate? Or take at different times?
The link you gave provides no details as
to the nature of the interaction -- if it
inhibits absorption, or messes with
deiodination, or screws up receptors, or
whatever. It would be nice to know what's
going on. But simply increasing the thyroid
dose, cautiously and modestly, might be all
you need.
