Re: Prescribed Synthroid/cytomel - Question On Dosage Split - Mg Or Anyone

Taking it on an empty stomach will improve its absorption and how much is absorbed.

Most take in the morning with their synthroid and later in the afternoon, an hour or to after lunch. I am not sure backing your T4 back to 75 will be enough given the 12.5 jump. I would have thought dropping it back to 50 mcgs would have been the better move. Keep an eye out for hyperT symptoms.
