Thyroid test

I just read something interesting:

Many medications —  including aspirin and thyroid-hormone replacement therapy —  may affect thyroid gland function test results, so tell your doctor about any drugs you are taking.

What effect will taking aspirin have on a thyroid test? Will it make it appear overactive or underactive?

I have to go for a thyroid test but have been having headaches so I' ve been taking some grandpa powders?
