Hi. I was instructed by my Endo doc and when I was in the hospital last week that thyroid medicine is taken alone with a half hour wait before you drink anything but water, eat anything, Or take other meds.
I was told it has to be absorbed before anything else enters your stomach. So i take it when i first wake up in the morning. No tea or coffee either.
Also a few meds and vitamins are to be taken a couple hours later. So check with your pharmacist to be sure on that. Hope that helps.

After taking cyproheptadine for a few months to gain weight I was wondering does the weight stay on?
