Selenium shouldnt' interfere with anythingelse you are taking, but I would advicse taking it with a meal or with Vitamin E. Selenium increases the uptake of Vitamin E, so it would make that more beneficial.

As I said, I would advise taking it with a meal or with your other supplements (especially Vitamin E). This means that you should not take it at the same time as your thyroid meds, since you shouln't take your thyroid meds with food or other supplements. It wouldn't likely affect your thyroid meds one way or the other, but I like to be ultra-safe.
