I am a Graves' Disease sufferer seeking a bit of advice because I am a bit unsure as to when to start taking my Levothyroxine dosage each day. After a few weeks of being on Carbimazole and Propranolol, I have been given the go-ahead to start taking Levothyroxine.
At the moment I take my first dosage of Propranolol 40mg with my full daily dosage of Carbimazole 40mg just before my breakfast each day and I take my second dosage of Propranolol 40mg just before my evening meal.
I read on the Levothyroxine leaflet that it should be taken on an empty stomach with a full glass of water before breakfast. If I do this, I don't know when I should take my Propranolol/Carbimazole meds?Unfortunately, I can't ask my Endocrinologist about this because he's gone AWOL and it is my Doctor who has been prescribing my meds until I go and see my new Endo in December and he is very hard to get a hold of.
I've also read online that Levothyroxine can interact with Propranolol so I'm a little nervous about starting it and I also read somewhere about not having caffeine within half an hour of taking it? Is this correct? I have read and re-read the leaflet and it gives hardly any information to help me.
If anybody could advise me some more that would be so great! Many, many thanks! x
