From this study (4 months ago):
I have been taking the levothyroxine for my hypothyroidism for about 2 years, and the lorsartan potassium for my high blood pressure for about 3 months and my thyroid level and blood pressure level is much better. In the last 2 months, I took a 6 day dose of methylprednisolone and then I took Diclofenac Sodium for 2 weeks and I started noticing some tenderness and soreness in my right breast and so I stopped taking this medicine, but the tenderness in my breast is still there and I was worried about what might be causing this tenderness.
From this study (1 year ago):
began after Levothyroxine was increased
