Whenever your morning is should be fine, its just relative to your schedule. Levothyroxin increases cellular metabolism and food metabolism, along with other therapeutic effects. I think taking at your morning (before you start eating for the day) is what the prescription can be interpreted as.. Always best to call the pharmacy to double check

I have had hypothyroidism for over a year now and the best time to take synthroid (levothyroxin) is right when you wake up before you even get out of bed,as soon as I started doing that as the doctor sugested my blood levels stablized and I havent had a problem with my weight since, best of luck
