Meds Before Appointment?

Hey guys! I'm sure this has been posted and responded to before, but I was having a difficult time finding it with the search option, so here goes...

I'm currently on 200mcg of Levoxyl & 5mcg of Cytomel (take both first thing in the morning -- about 7am). I have a Dr.'s appointment tomorrow at 9:45am. Do I take my meds before the appointment or not? This will be my first lab since starting the Cytomel.

Thanks!!
zekat

Re: Meds Before Appointment?

Don't take the meds before your blood draw. They will cause a temporary spike in your levels which won't reflect what your cellular levels really are.
I usually don't come right home after the lab or office visit, so I take my med with me and take it right after the draw.
