    I hope you figure this out soon.
    For humans you are supposed to take it on an empty stomach, for dogs they can take it with food. Dr. Fant just wanted her to take it whenever was easier for me to remember so I was giving it to her during her mealtimes.

    Yesterday was insanity for me, and I haven't heard back from the vet. Hopefully she will call me back sometime today… I only gave Roxie one pill and she didn't throw up, so I'm convinced it's the meds.

    Talked to Dr. Fant this morning… she wants me to just give her one pill a day. Thyroid is SO difficult to regulate, so I'm hopeful that she will be able to tolerate the meds. She also wants me to give her 1 pepcid a day, she still believes the stomach acid issue is playing a part in the vomiting. I talked to her about the Orijen Senior food, and she said that would probably help w/her sensitive stomach as well. THANK you guys for all the prayers and good wishes… I just HATE to see her like this

    Oh Tracey, of course you do! I'm hoping (and thinking) it's the meds. Thyroid
    dosage IS tricky and that Pepcid should help the stomach issues.

    Praying over her & y'all...we send loving hugs and hope she feels better asap!

    I think finding the right dosage and the pepcid will definitely help. Just trial and error now.

    Fingers crossed she'll be her old self in no time!

    Maybe the dosage is not enough?
