There are warnings about the interaction between Levothyroxine and calcium. So..... Levothyroxine messes with the calcium in your body and the CCB messes with the calcium in your body.
You might consider checking with your doctor regarding the safety of taking both the CCB and Levothyroxine. If your doctor says that it is OK to take both meds, you might consider asking him if it would be OK to take the meds three hours apart from each other. Hopefully you have a doctor that has some understanding and knowledge about the medications he prescribes.
If your problems with Bradycardia persist, perhaps your doctor could consider a different type of heart medicine other than the CCB.
