I have a family member who is hypo and is on Levo ...50 I think is the dose. She recently had blood tests done and I pointed out all the things that need improving like ferritin needing to be around 70-90 etc. She told me she takes a multivitamin type tablet and she takes it with her thyroid meds in the morning and I of course went "noooooo you mustn't do that" as I have seen this mentioned lots of times. She then asked me what other things I recommend and as I have never been on thyroid meds before I wanted to check with those that know so that I can give her accurate info.
1)take thyroid meds in the morning with water. Does she have to have it away from food? How long after is ok to eat? She says normally 20 minutes later she is eating,is that too soon?
2)she also takes omeprazole with her Levo. Is that ok to do or should she take the omeprazole at a different time?
3) and just to make sure I have said the right thing about supplements, I told her to wait 4 hours before having her iron/multivitamin pills. Is that correct?
