They say take the synthroid on an empty stomach..but eat with the rest. Also not to combine the calcium too close with the synthroid, but he has me taking it 3 times a day. My goodness I feel like my Grandma and all this medicine. I'm only 34. I guess I should of asked for a time frame. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm only taking Thyroxine now but at one stage I was taking a multitude of pills after my TT. I take the thyroxine as soon as I get up and eat 30 mins plus after that. I would then leave it 30 mins before taking my calcium and vit D and would then take calcium at lunch time and with my evening meal. Sorry I cant help you with the other medication.
Hope this helps
