I had my thyroid removed several years ago and have been taking 175mcg of levothyroxine for at least 5 years. I have recently decided to become a vegetarian, but am aware that I may not have enough iron in my diet, as I am feeling more tired than usual. Is it okay to take a multi vitamin with iron supplement?
The advice on what not to take with levothyroxine on the leaflets with my medication is confusing. I have taken different brands over the years and some leaflets mention not taking anything with calcium carbonate, which appears to be in nearly all multi vitamin supplements and others mention not taking iron supplements! I have found some multi vitamins with iron, which do not contain calcium carbonate.
