I have hypothyroidism. My TSH level is higher than the normal range. T3 and T4 are fine. I go to the gym regularly and like to lift heavy weights. I am taking pre-workout supplement - Nitrous Oxide. I heard that this is not good for me but I want to take some pre-workout supplement. What should I do? Should I take some other type of supplement for strength, energy, focus, endurance?

I am already taking whey protein but protein do not give me enough strength which I get from a pre-workout supplement. Without a pre-workout supplement, I am not able to increase the weights in gym. I keep using the same weights for 1-2 months.
If I should not take Nitrous oxide, then please suggest some other pre-workout supplement to get strength.
I understand your concern.
