Time of day to take your thyroid meds for hypothyroidism?
I have just be diagnosed with hypothyroidism and am on 50mg of levothyroxine a day. My doc told me to take it on an empty stomach and not to eat/drink (other than water) anything for an hour afterwards. Also to not take my multivitiam for at least 4 hours afterwards.
When I went to pick up the prescription for the first time, I had already thought about it and decided that the best time to take it for me would be right before I go to sleep at night, however right on the prescription label it says "take in the morning".
Does anyone know the reasoning for this? I don't feel like bugging my doctor right now, so I took it in the morning but think it would be easier to do at night. Thoughts?
