Ari4,

Iron and vitamin D should be taken 4 hours away from Levothyroxine.

Vitamin D should be taken with the fattiest meal of the day to aid absorption.

You should check whether the iron tablet is to be taken with or away from food.

B12 and B Complex are best taken in the morning or at lunchtime.

As far as I'm aware the other vitamins can be taken at any time as long as it's 2 hours away from Levothyroxine.

Zinc and iron are both a mineral so if taken together they work against each other to fight for absorption. The same with vitamin C and Vitamin b12. I would leave a few hours between taking these.
