    Cytomel & synthroid,take at same time?

    Meds recently changed from armour to these. Am I supposed to take them both first thing in am, or take cytomel later?
    TIA

    Hmmmm.... Your doc should have directed how they should be taken.

    For the most part, Synthroid is taken in the morning & Cytomel tablets are normally either taken in the morning and mid late afternoon (if two tablets), or if the prescription is only one Cytomel per day, then it is broken in half and taken morning and late afternoon.

    no directions on time of day to take cytomel, just to take it at the same time everyday. Didnt specify whether or not to take at same time as synthroid. I have been taking both at the same time then starting thinking since you are supposed to take synthroid then wait before eating anything else for an hour that maybe I shouldn't take cytomel at the same time. Instructions give with rx didnt say either.

    Your pharmacist would be able to answer your question.
    But if it were me, I would take them at the same time without worry.
