    Question re: taking thyroid and adrenal meds together:

    Hello,
    Thanks for all your posts and advice; this is a helpful forum!
    I understand that the recommendation is to take your T4 (Levo, etc.) on an empty stomach to maximize absorption.
    Can you also take your dose of T3 and hydrocortisone with your T4?
    What if those are slow release T3 and HC, does that make a difference either way?
    Looking to simplify taking meds so that they're not forgotten or delayed.
    Thanks, RB.

    Hon, I think you need to ask your pharmacist. They are very helpful with these issues.

    It helps to get a small calendar on which to record when the med was taken.

    Pharmacist no help, couldn't even tell me how long SR would last. Endocrinologist only wants to talk thyroid, not adrenals.

    Thanks anyway, R
