Other meds

Hiii it’s me again ha. Well iv been for a blood test this morning. They never told me to not have my levo first, only u guys. So I never took it at my usual time of 5/6am I took it after my blood test which was 9-45. What time now can I take my painkillers and blood pressure tabs? It’s near 2 hours since the levo, so I should be able to take them now eh? From what I’m sussing out this tablet takes a very long time to get thro the system. So I usually wait 2/3 hours after to take tabs n eat. I think it should be ok now tho

It takes up to 2 hours for the stomach to empty so it is fine to eat, drink & take other meds 2 hours after taking Levothyroxine.
