I read your post:
Put me down for Synthroid. I've been taking it for probably almost 20 years.
I take mine usually a little while after breakfast. I take a whole fistfull of pills and if I take them all on an empty stomach, it makes my stomach feel funny. So I take them after I eat.
I don't know what other medications you take, and I'm sure since it's a fistfull some of them probably need to be taken with food, however, the synthroid should be taken on an empty stomach for proper absorption. Also, there are a LOT of medications that should not be taken at the same time as synthroid. I know you know this, but make sure all your doctors know all the medications you are taking.
"How should you take Synthroid?
Take Synthroid as a single dose, preferably on an empty stomach, one-half to one hour before breakfast. The drug is absorbed better on an empty stomach.
Levoxyl tablets may swell quickly, resulting in choking or gagging. Be sure to take the pills with an entire glass of water to avoid this problem."
How to use Synthroid Oral
Take this medication by mouth usually once a day on an empty stomach, 1/2 to 1 hour before breakfast, or as directed by your doctor. To prevent difficulty swallowing the tablet, take it with a full glass of water unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
Just want you to have all the facts!
Thanks for the info. I'll look into it for sure.
