Spacing doses

Hi all

I'd be grateful for advice on spacing doses of (metavive) so I minimise problems: one v early is fine but had been taking second about 4. If I want to make it 3... I get confused w timing of food and vitamins

Now attempting to take 2-3 capsules one at a time to see if throats problems pass - will have blood results next week to see what's going on hormone & TSH wise - as private GP said to experiment and see how many I can take with minimum problems for a couple of weeks 😓 It's that or switch over to Levo/T3 combo and he's like to see if I can tolerate the metavive more.

Kittysmummy,

Doesn't the Metavive bottle or patient information leaflet advise whether it should be taken with or away from food?

It says to take one per day before a meal or as directed by practitioner. So maybe 30 mins before a meal?

Kittysmummy,

Maybe 60 mins would be better.

Ok. So maybe 6:30, 12:30, 4:30? If I have breakfast at 7:30, does that leave long enough to take an iron supplement somewhere?

You could take iron after the evening meal
