Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

Hello everyone. I started taking levothyroxine about a month ago. I checked the information that comes with the meds. This as well as everything I can find on levothyroxine says that you should take it with food. This struck me as odd because it goes against everything I have read and heard about thyroid meds. When I was on synthroid, I was very careful to take it on an empty stomach. Since taking the levothyroxine, I have been eating with it. I'm feeling much, much better than I did before. Not sure if it's the change in meds, the increase in dosage, how I take it or what. Just happy that it's finally working. :) What do you all think of taking levothyroxine with food?
