    sleepiness with Levothyroxine

    I'm new to low thyroid and have been taking a low dose of levothyroxine for almost a month. I also take Carbatrol for seizures. I find that when I take levothyroxine, I fall asleep. Not sure if it is the thyroid meds or the combination of the Carbatrol and Levothyroxine. Will the sleepiness go away after time? I tried taking it at night after waiting 2 hours after eating... which helped me sleep at night. I wasn't not sure if that was wise, so I switched back to the mornings.

    1. You need to know what your thyroid levels are. 2. Check with a pharmacist to ask if there is any adverse reaction with your other medicine.
    I personally know a woman who has taken her thyroid medicine for many years at bedtime (because she has children & works and this has been a better system for her).
