Is taking thyroid medicine at night a good idea?

I accidentally took my natural compounded thyroid capsule at bedtime and actually slept really well and also felt good in the morning! I am wondering if others have a similar experience. I have been taking thyroid meds for about 10 plus years and have been really tired during the daytime for the last several. Seems like I have accidentally come upon an answer for the hard time sleeping and the fatigue during the daytime.

Have a good read of the comments and discussion on this poll:

(Doing that will probably send you into a deep sleep... :-) )



Thanks Rod,

I am ready to try it again! I was pretty amazed at how well I slept the time it was a goof! It seems like I have been fighting sleep and yawning the day away till late afternoon and evening then I have been wide awake! I am so ready to have a normal sleep cycle!


Yes I did the same thing and take mine at night. I feel much better on it and have all the next day to take any supplements etc. also don't have to worry about leaving gaps for food.

I heard it from Rod and haven't looked back.



Same here. Started doing this a few days into treatment because I couldn't stay awake.

Now I have a slightly more normal sleep pattern but do sleep all night.


Hi, I have been taking levothyroxine at night for 6 weeks and haven't looked back! I'm now sleeping better and find I have slightly more energy than before. So far so good :-)
