I believe Synthroid should be taken on an empty stomach with a big glass of water. That you're doing it one horu before you eat is smart--I think that's what is suggested.
I, too, had a question regarding calcium and iron. I don't take a multi with either of those supplements in it, nor do I take my calcium supplement within 4 hours of taking the Synthroid. I wondered if eating a bowl of cereal with milk might make a difference...I didn't get a chance to ask the doc that, but I'm assuming that since the supplement has so much more of a dose in it, that the milk in the cereal is not too bad.
hope you're feeling better--
