Post Selenium

When is the best time to take selenium. Should you take it with a multi-vitamin, or with your thyroid meds, or at night or first thing in the morning? Just wondering because I want to start taking selenium and didn't know if it would have any effect on my thyroid medication.

I have been taking it at a different time from my multi-vitamins. I read somewhere that it is best to take them at different times. I take my meds in the am, about noontime I take the selenium and at night with dinner my multivitamins. I seems to work for me.

P.S. I noticed since taking the selenium that I don't have the brain fog!! (Now what am I going to use for an excuse?)

If you multivitamin has 200mg of selenium than you don't need to take anymore, the recommended is 100 to 200mg a day, so you are getting what you need.
