Taking your medicine?

I just started taking my synthroid this week. I take it then wait an hour to eat. I also have to take calcium with vit. d due to a deficiency they found in my blood work. I also have to take Lexapro for anxiety and metformin. I take Topamax at night for migraines. I am so confused as to when to eat and when to take medicine. 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.

Hi

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
