liothyronine sodium and Folic acid meds

Hi all just wondering if anyone here takes both these meds liothyronine sodium and Folic acid how to space them out. I take t3 in morning then calcium + d3 at lunch (4hours apart from t3) so would I wait 2 hours to take the folic acid after lunch or with it. As i have to take another t3 an hour before dinner so around 6pm. Thanks

Read the folic acid patient information leaflet to see whether it should be taken with food. If so take it with lunch, if not, 2 hours after lunch.


In addition to the Folic Acid I am wondering why such a small dose of VitD ? Do you know your last result ? - sorry have not read all your previous posts .....


yeah my vit d is Vit D 141 nmol/L Normal Range 25-170


Gosh that is good. When was the test done ? - maybe you could stop taking it for a while. Why the calcium ? VitD improves the uptake of calcium from foods so extra rarely needed. Has your calcium been tested ? VitK 2 and Magnesium also needed.

Apologies if you know all this 😊
